  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Press pie crust into an ungreased 9-inch pie pan; prick several times with a fork.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove and let cool. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Combine flour, brown sugar, and butter in a bowl for the streusel topping and set aside.

  • Mix cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract together in another bowl. Spread cheesecake mixture into the pie crust, cover with cooled lemon filling, and top with the streusel.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until filling is set and streusel is golden brown, about 45 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Bake pie crust according to individual package instructions.
