Ok, so here is a way to have your cheesecake and eat it to.
What better way to have more than 1 cheesecake (when you're craving)... just make "mini" cheesecakes. Then you can have 2 or 4 and feel good about yourself
(or is this just my twisted logic?)
1 c graham cracker crumbs
1/4 c sugar
7-8 tbsp butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine above ingredients thoroughly, and spoon into the bottom of mini pie pans (you can also use this mix for (1) large cheesecake - recipe yield (1) 8 inch springform cake pan).
Press mixture up against the sides of the pan.
Bake for 5 minutes (8 if using a cake pan). Let cool.
12 oz cream cheese, softened
1 c sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
Beat cream cheese first. Add sugar and vanilla, mix until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time. Spoon mixture into prepared crust.
Place in a baking pan 1/2 filled with water (to prevent cracking). Bake 15-17 minutes (40-45 minutes for full cake pan). Cool to room temperature, then refrigerate ovenight.
