Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 Cup Graham Cracker Crumbs, see note
3 Tbsp. Sugar
3 Tbsp. Melted Butter, see note
32 Oz Cream Cheese, softened, see note
1 Cup Sugar
3 Tbsp. Flour
4 Eggs
1 Cup Sour Cream, see note
1 Tbsp. Vanilla
Topping Of Your Choice


Preheat oven to 350 F.

Mix crumbs, sugar, and butter.

Press onto bottom of 9 or 10-inch spring-form pan

Bake 10 minutes.

Beat cream cheese, sugar, and flour at medium speed until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Blend in sour cream and vanilla.

Pour over crust.

Bake 1 hour and 10 minutes.

Turn oven off and let cake sit in oven with the door propped open until oven has cooled.

Loosen cake from rim of pan.

Rim can be removed when completely cooled.

Best flavor is developed if refrigerated.

Any kind of crumbs can be used.

I often use chocolate cookie crumbs rather than graham cracker crumbs.

I've also used finely chopped nuts.

You can use margarine instead of butter, but I always figure that when I make a cheesecake, it's special, so why cut corners on fat, calories, and, most especially, flavor.

Many times I have added an additional partial package of cream cheese that I may have had on hand, and once I added a whole additional 8-oz package with no problem with the texture or taste.

Simple and to the point, its almost like my usual recipe except ive never used sour cream in mine; I might just try that next time. Thanks :)
