  1. Prheat the over to 325 degrees; wrap the outside of a 10-inch springform pan with heavy duty foil; then spray the inside entirely with nonstick spray. Press the graham cracker crumbs over the bottom and partially up the sides of the pan.
  2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating on low speed until blended; stir in the lemon zest.
  4. Pour the batter into the springform pan and set into a large roasting pan.
  5. Pour boiling water into the roasting pan to come halfway up the sides of the springform pan.
  6. Bake until almost completely set, 30-32 minutes.
  7. Turn off the oven and prop open the door with a wooden spoon; leave the cake in the oven for 30 minutes.
  8. Transfer to a rack and run a knife around the edge of the pan to release the cake.
  9. Cool completely, then refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
