Beat cream cheese, granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon of the vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Blend in sour cream; pour over cake layer.

Bake an additional 35 minutes or until center is almost set. Run a knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim of pan.
