  1. 1 c Sugar, granulated

  2. 2 lb Cream Cheese

  3. 2 lg Eggs

  4. 1 c Sour Cream

  5. 1 t Vanilla

  6. 3 tb Cornstarch

  7. 1 c Graham Cracker Crumbs

  8. 1 1/4 c Oreo Cookie Crumbs

  9. 1/4 c Butter or Margarine

  10. 3 tb Sugar, granulated

  11. 3 tablespoons granulated sugar. Press the crumb mixture in the bottom of a greased

  12. 8" or 9" springform pan. Place the pan in the freezer to chill while you prepare the filling. : In a mixer bowl, mix the cream cheese and sugar until smooth and light. I, myself, mix alternately

  13. 8 ozs. of the cream cheese and 1/4 cup of the sugar. This is just to ensure it is evenly mixed. When the cream cheese and sugar mixture is light and creamy, mix in the eggs, vanilla, and the cornstarch, making sure it is mixed well. It should be a nice light yellow color. Mix in the sour cream until well mixed. Pour the mixture into the prepared springform pan. : Bake in a preheated

  14. 450 degree oven for 10 minutes. Reduce the temperature to

  15. 200 degrees and bake for another

  16. 45 minutes. Turn oven off and allow the cheesecake to cool in the oven with the door opened slightly for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Remove sides from pan and chill in refrigerator for another

  17. 2 to 3 hours. Then slide the cheesecake off the bottom of your pan, if you wish. ** You can use the Oreo Cookie Crumbs in place of the Graham Cracker Crumbs for a wonderfully delightful change. (This is the way that most of the people order it from me.) ** Before placing the cheescake in the oven for baking, I always sprinkle a bit of the crumbs on top for garnish. Really looks nice! ** Last hint: I put a pan with about 2-3 inches of hot water on the bottom shelf. It helps to keep the cheesecake from cracking. Always bake the cheesecake on the middle shelf...NO LOWER!!! From Elaine Poncelet, Vision Dimension BBS, Kook-Net HUB, Gerald, Missouri
