INSTRUCTIONS

  • 1 Preheat oven to 325°F. For the Vanilla Wafer Crust, mix vanilla wafer crumbs, butter, sugar and vanilla in medium bowl until well blended. Press evenly into bottom and 2 inches up sides of 9-inch springform pan. Set aside.
  • 2 For the Filling, beat cream cheese and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on high speed until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended. Add sour cream and vanilla; mix well. Pour into prepared crust.

    Test Kitchen Tip: For creamier texture if you’re swapping in ricotta cheese in place of the cream cheese, process the ricotta in a blender or food processor until very smooth before combining with remaining filling ingredients.
  • 3 Bake 50 minutes or until center is almost set. Turn off oven. Leave cheesecake in oven 2 hours or until cooled. Remove from oven.
  • 4 Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Run small knife around sides of pan to loosen crust; remove sides of pan. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.
  • 5 Substitution Tip: If you have trouble finding cream cheese and don't want to use ricotta, try this recipe with vegan-friendly cream cheese, like Tofutti®. If you’re looking for a fully vegan version of our vanilla cheesecake, check out this Vegan Cheesecake recipe!
