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
For the Crust:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
- 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.
- In a large bowl, combìne graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter; stìr well to combìne. Fìrmly pat the mìxture ìnto the prepared pan.
- 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:
- 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.
