  • Mix softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Beat for at least 3 minutes or until there are no lumps of cream cheese.  Then beat eggs in - one at a time blending well between each one.
  • Pour into crust. Bake at 350 for 40 min. Cool. Refrigerate at least 3 hours.
  • You can top it with anything you want.


When you cut the cheesecake, start from the center of the cheesecake out.  Use a butter knife and dip it in water before slicing.  This will slice the cheesecake with clean-edged slices.
