The first bite will melt in your mouth. I told myself to only eat a half of a slice, then one more bite, one more BIG bite, then it was gone. Do not expect 'will power' to come into play when eating this cheesecake.

  1. In a small bowl, combine the crushed graham crackers and 1/4 cup sugar; add the butter and blend well. Press onto the bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie plate. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before filling, or bake at 350 degrees F for 8 minutes, cooling on a cooling rack before filling.
