Directions:
Preheat oven to 325 for silver springform pan or 300 for dark nonstick springform pan.

Mix crumbs, butter and 3 tbsp sugar. Press firmly onto bottom of a 9-inch springform pan to form crust.

Beat cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, and vanilla with electric mixes on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs one at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition until just blended. (Be careful not to overmix, this could cause your cheesecake to crack after baking.) Pour mixture over crust.

Bake for 55 minutes or until center is almost set. Loosen cake from side of pan; cool before removing side of pan. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Store in the refrigerator.

Personal Notes:
Try to keep mixing to a minimal after adding eggs. You want your cheescake to be pretty, right? Best to let cheescake cool before putting in the refrigerator to for 4 hours. This too will help it not to crack.
