Preheat the oven to 350° F. Using a fork or two hands, cut the butter into the mixture. Stir to combine until all of the ingredients are well incorporated and crumbly. Refrigerate until ready to use.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Using a fork or a pastry blender cut the mixture together until smooth.
Press the crust into a 9×13 baking pan lined with tin foil. Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the cream cheese with the sugar on medium speed until smooth.
Add the eggs, 1 at a time, making sure to scrape down the sides. Add the vanilla, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Stir to combine. Pour the mixture over the warm crust.
Break the crumble into small crumbles. Sprinkle it evenly over the cheesecake.
Bake 40-45 minutes, or until the filling is set and the crumble is golden. Cool completely, and refrigerate overnight. Cut into bars.
