I named this number one because this was my first cheesecake! I was so afraid to try one until the ladies on this wonderful site helped me and another lady who had never made one either in kind of a challenge and we did it! We both made our cheesecake today we just made different types of cheesecake! It has been fun! It aleast kept us out of cheesecake therapy!!! Which is a fear of making cheesecake!

This is the original recipe for the crust. I personally like my crust not thick but a little thicker. I suggest go up a half on everything or you can double it. Personal choice.

Mix well and press into a 9 in.springform pan which has been sprayed with Pam. Bake for 10 min. Remove and let it cool completely. Turn your oven down to 300°
