- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 (3 ounce) bottle colored sprinkles (small size-multicolored)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 inch springform pan.
- In a medium bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter. Press onto bottom of springform pan.
- In a large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Blend in milk, and then mix in the eggs one at a time, mixing just enough to incorporate.
