Step 1: Preheat the oven Heat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and grease the bottom of the pan with 1 tablespoon of melted butter. Set aside. Step 2: Prepare the crust Combine the graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup of melted butter and 1/4 cup of sugar in a small bowl with the large fork. Mix until the crumbs are coated with butter. Step 3: Make the crust Empty the contents into the prepared pan and push down firmly on the base. Use your fingers, or the back of a fork, to form a solid crust. Step 4: Make the cheesecake filling In a medium bowl, blend the eggs, sour cream, and vanilla on medium speed with the hand mixer. Add the cream cheese, ? cup of sugar, and 1 tablespoon of butter. Mix on low speed until combined. Tip Using cream cheese at room temperature will make it easier to blend. Step 5: Prepare to bake Pour the cheesecake filling over the graham cracker crust and spread evenly across the pan. Step 6: Bake the cheesecake Bake the cheesecake for 50 minutes to an hour, then broil for five to eight minutes, or until the top begins to brown. Tip The cheesecake is done when the center jiggles slightly. Step 7: Leave the cheesecake to set Remove the pan from the oven and set on a cooling rack for 10 to 15 minutes before refrigerating it. Leave it to cool and set for at least three to four hours, or overnight for the best flavor and texture. Did You Know? Authentic New York Cheesecake is served without any toppings.
