I made my brother and his family dinner for his "Big 40" birthday. He loves cheesecake - actually he loves anything - for dessert. Notice the bony fingers? Yeah. Why do the guys always get the skinny genes? This is a great recipe that I got from a friend about ten years ago. It is always a winner!

12 Graham crackers - blend in food processor. Then pour in
1/3 Cup melted butter
Put in a pie plate and smash the crust around sides and bottom. Or you can buy a crust - but this one is better.
2 x 8 oz. cream cheese softened
3/4 Cup sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Mix until smooth. Gently spread in crust. Bake at 350° for 18 minutes.
Cream Topping:
16 oz. sour cream
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 Cup sugar
Fold together and smooth over cheesecake. Bake for another five minutes. Eat with or without fruit toppings. I love blueberry best so I used that. Just use your favorite or not. Tastes best in the closet with the door locked.
