  2. For the cheesecake
    Reduce the heat to 300 degrees. In a large mixing bowl mix the cream cheese, sugar, and flour on low speed. Add the sour cream and vanilla still mixing on low speed. Add one egg at a time mixing on low speed. Stir in 1 1/4 cups of the frosted animal cracker crumbs. Stir slowly. Pour the cheesecake mixture over the crust. Place the foil wrapped springform pan in another bigger pan and fill with warm water half way up the sides of the springform pan.
