  1. Crust:.
  2. Melt butter and add all other ingredients to make a crumb mixture.

  4. Bake for ten minutes at 350 degrees.
  5. Remove from oven and set aside.

  8. Beat well until nice and smooth.
  9. Add the buttermilk and vanilla, again beat well and smooth.
  10. Add eggs one at a time, incorporating each on well, but do not overbeat.
  11. Again will specify do not over beat.
  12. Pour into the prebaked crust and set into oven.
  13. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
  14. Bake then reducing heat to 300 and bake 25 more minutes.
  15. Reduce heat down again to 200 degrees and finish baking until just slightly jiggly in centre, this is about another 20 to 25 minutes.
  16. Can also place a small pot of water in the back corner of oven, or place in a water bath if desired.
  17. I usually dry bake all my cheesecakes, but this recipe allows for all types of baking.
  18. Remove and let cool to room temp on a rack for at least three hours.
  19. Then refrigerate and chill.

I made this last night and served today, my family didn't leave a crumb. The flavor is tangier than other plain cheesecake recipes, nice and creamy. I did sub splenda for the sugar and upped it by 1/4 cup. I also skipped the corn meal in the crust.
