Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix graham crumbs and melted butter until well blended; press firmly onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan. Set aside. Beat cream cheese and 3/4 cup of the sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add 3 of the eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Stir in 1 Tbsp. of grated lemon peel. Pour over crust.

Meanwhile, beat remaining 3 eggs and remaining 3/4 cup sugar with wire whisk until well blended. Add remaining 1 Tbsp. lemon peel, the lemon juice and 2 Tbsp. butter; mix well. Microwave on HIGH 2 min.; beat until butter is completely melted and mixture is well blended. Microwave an additional 2 min. or until mixture just comes to boil and is slightly thickened; stir.
