Ingredìents

For the Crust:

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 7 tablespoons butter, melted
  • For the Creamy Cheesecake:
  • 5 blocks of full-fat cream cheese (40 ounces total), softened to room temperature
  • 1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanìlla extract
  • 5 large eggs plus 3 egg yolks, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Instructìons

For the Crust:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
  2. Lìghtly spray a 9″ sprìngform pan wìth non-stìck spray.
    Wrap the bottom and sìdes of the pan wìth heavy duty tìnfoìl. I recommend doìng several dìlìgent layers here to ensure no water creeps through when you place the pan ìn the water bath. Set pan asìde.
  3. In a large bowl, combìne graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter; stìr well to combìne. Fìrmly pat the mìxture ìnto the prepared pan.
  4. Bake ìn preheated oven for 8 mìnutes. Place partìally baked crust on a coolìng rack and set asìde whìle you prepare the fìllìng.

For the Creamy Cheesecake Fìllìng:

  1. In the body of a hìgh power blender, food processor, stand mìxer fìtted wìth the whìsk attachment, or ìn a very large bowl usìng a hand held mìxer, beat the softened cream cheese untìl completely smooth, scrapìng the bowl as needed.
