The Celestial CheeseCake
3 1/3 Philidelphia Cream cheese
2 eggs
1 cup Sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla extract
3/4 Cup Sour Cream
2 1/2 Cups Grahm Cracker Crumbs
1 Stick Butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a bowl mix 2 1/2 cups of grahm cracker crumbs and 1 stick of melted butter. Make sure you get all the crumbs covered with some of the melted butter.

Pour the crumbs into a 9 inch spring form and pack into the pan. I use the bottom of a glass, that way you can kind of get the crumbs up the sides also. Place into preheated oven for 10 minutes. Then cool in the freezer for 5 minutes.

In a bowl put your 3 cream cheeses, 2 eggs, 1 cup of sugar, 1 1/2 teaspons of vanilla extract and 3/4 cup sour cream. Mix with hand mixer or stand mixer on medium speed for about 3 min or until smooth and not lumpy.

Pour mixture into the 9 inch round with the crust you just made and cooled. Spread evenly.

On the second rack of your oven place a shallow pan of water with about 8 cups of water in it. I use my broiler pan. Then on the top rack place your cheesecake.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for 45 minutes.

Cool in the refrigerator for about 3 hours. Enjoy!!
