Absolutely WONDERFUL!!!!!!!! So incredibly easy to make, and probably less than half the cost of a store bought cheesecake.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blend the cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar, and 1/4 cup melted butter, and line the bottom of an 8- or 9-inch ungreased spring form pan.
  2. Blend the sour cream, 1/2 cup sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a food blender for 1 minute.
  3. Add the cream cheese. Blend until smooth.
  4. Pour 2 tbsp melted butter through the top of the machine. Pour into the spring form pan.
  5. Bake in the lower third of a 325 degree oven for 45 minutes.
  6. When baking is finished, remove from oven, and turn oven onto broil. Broil the cheesecake just until the top begins to show attractive brown spots.
  7. Refrigerate for 4 hours, preferably overnight, before cutting and serving. This is not a low calorie version. Cut into small pieces - it is very rich. Serves 8-12.
