Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325° Grease 9-inch springfoam pan.
  2. Crush graham crackers. Put butter in the microwave, covered, for 20 seconds.
  3. In a medium sized bowl, mix melted butter and crushed graham crackers.
  4. Press crust into the bottom of greased springfoam pan.
  5. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Blend in milk and then eggs, one at a time. Mix in sour cream and vanilla until smooth. Note: Beat cream cheese and sugar ONLY until smooth. Mix the rest of the ingredients with a wooden spoon. Overbeating will cause the cheesecake to have the "wrong" texture, aka: air bubbles, not creamy texture, etc. Also overcooking will cause the cheesecake to crack.
  6. Poor filling onto prepared crust.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for ONE hour. Turn the oven off and let the cake cool in the oven for 6 hours. (This will prevent cracking.) Chill in the refrigerator until ready to eat.

Note: Do NOT open up the oven. Once you put the cheesecake in. Set the timer for 60 minutes. When it goes off, turn off the oven, WITHOUT checking it, and let it sit for the full 6 hours. Just let it sit and do it's own thing and it will have a better chance of not cracking.
