Ingredients:  
15 graham crackers, crushed
2 tablespoons butter, melted

4 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, room temperature
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup milk
4 large eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup all purpose flour

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350˚ F. Grease a 9 inch springform pan. Prepare water bath*.

In medium mixing bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. (Sometimes I add a little more melted butter if needed) Press onto bottom of springform pan.

In a large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Blend in milk. Mix in eggs one at a time until incorporated. Mix in sour cream, vanilla and flour until smooth. Pour filling onto prepared crust.

Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Remove cheesecake from water bath and return to oven. Turn oven off and let cake cool in oven with door closed for 5 to 6 hours; this prevents cracking. Chill in refrigerator until serving.

Water Bath: Wrap the bottom of springform pan in two sheets of aluminum foil coming up all sides at least two inches. Place a large baking sheet with at least a 1 inch raised side in oven. Place filled aluminum covered springform pan on baking sheet and fill baking sheet with boiling water up to the edge of pan. Bake cheesecake as directed. The water bath prevents the cheesecake from cracking.
