This is a recipe I get alot of requests for. I love it because it's so rich and creamy. My sister-in-law cons me into making her one every Christmas! I got it from the back of a box of graham cracker crumbs.

this was so yummy, and creamy and delicious. i actually made it into cupcake sizes for a class but yum yum and it has 1 less cup of sugar than my other favorite cheesecake recipe so i will be switching this to my favorite one now!! i used lowfat dairy products too and it turned out perfect. the only change i made was i omitted the sugar in the crust.. crackers are sweet enough. thanks for my new cheesecake staple recipe!
