1/3 cup cream
Four eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons lemon juice (optional)

Topping: 1-cup sour cream or 2-cups fresh berries

I just made this..

When the cream cheese mixture is getting "hot" in the microwave, I stopped it every minute to stir it..Then tested it for "hotness"..It took about 5 minutes. Then I ladled it into the pie crust and only cooked it until it was firmish...which was about 6 or 7 minutes..Keep an eye on it. Of course, it depends on the size of your pie pan and the hotness of your microwave..

I made this this afternoon around 1 and dh and I had a piece for dessert at 6:30 and it was nice and creamy..It's a keeper for sure..and no cracks.

I put some strawberries/blueberries on the side.

I used a 10 inch pie pan..However, I think a 9 inch would work just fine. In my 10 inch the cheesecake is about an inch high, it would be "taller" in a smaller pan.
