1 cups graham cracker crumbs
3 Tbsp. sugar
3 Tbsp. melted butter

Combine and press into a spring form pan, going slightly up the edge.

3 (8 ounce) pkgs. Cream cheese, softened
5 large eggs
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix (beat) cream cheese until creamy and soft. Ad eggs, one at a time, beating after each egg. Add sugar and vanilla. Pour into pan with crust in bottom. Bake 1 hour at 325, or until firm. Do not over bake. A knife inserted will come out fairly clean. Do not be alarmed if filling appears to be cracked. The sour cream will fill in the gap! Cool for 15 minutes after baking. Reduce oven heat to 300 as soon as you remove the cheesecake.

2 cups sour cream
cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Combine ingredients and beat well. Pour on top of baked cheesecake after it has cooled for 15 minutes. Bake again at 300 for 5-10 minutes. Refrigerate for at least a day or overnight before serving.

Remove the outside of the pan to serve. Top slices with fruit if desired.
