Transfer the graham cracker crumbs into a medium bowl and stir in the melted butter and sugar until the mixture is well combined.Press the graham cracker mixture firmly into the bottom and up the sides (about 1 1/2 inches) of a 9-inch springform pan. (You can use the side and bottom of a dry measuring cup to help press the crumbs into the pan.) Cover the crust with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 20 minutes.In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese until smooth and then stream in the sweetened condensed milk. Add the lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla extract and beat until combined. Pour the filling into the chilled graham cracker crust, cover the cheesecake with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for 3 1/2 to 4 hours, or until firm. (See Kelly's Notes.)When ready to serve, remove the cheesecake from the fridge and unclasp the spring on the springform pan to remove the outer ring.

Because there is no gelatin in the mixture, the cheesecake will never fully harden past the pudding stage.

Food Joke

A blonde goes into a restaurant and notices there's a "peel and win" sticker on her coffee cup. So she's peels it off and starts screaming, "I've won a motor home! I've won a motor home!" The waitress says, "That's impossible. The biggest prize is a free lunch." But the blonde keeps screaming, "I've won a motor home! I've won a motor home!" Finally the manager comes over and says, "Ma'am, I'm sorry, but you're mistaken. You couldn't possibly have won a motor home because we didn't have that as a prize!" The blonde says, "No it's not a mistake. I've won a motor home!" She hands the ticket to the manager and he reads... " W I N A B A G E L "
