DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • To make the crust, mix graham crackers crumbs, butter, and 2 tablespoons of sugar in bowl.
  • Press mixture in bottom and sides of 9 inch springform pan.
  • In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and remaining sugar for 2 minutes.
  • Add eggs and vanilla to mixture and mix until well blended.
  • Then stir or fold in sour cream.
  • Pour mixture in crust filled pan and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Then reduce to 200 degrees to bake for 45 minutes.
  • From here the cheese cake just needs to be chilled, but I recommend doing the following step if you have a few extra hours- Leave in warm oven, once you turn it off but leave door slightly open.
  • Let sit and cool for 2 hours and remove from oven.
  • Remove sides from pan and chill in refrigerator.
