Preheat oven to 350°F, with rack in lower third of oven.  Pulse the graham crackers in a food processor or blender until finely ground.  Put in a large bowl, and stir in the sugar and salt.

10 © 2011  Gently press down on the crumbs using your fingers.  Be careful as you do this, as not to tear the aluminum foil.  Place in the oven for 10 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let cool.  Reduce the oven temperature to 325°F. PREPARATION OF CRUST METHOD OF PREPARING CRUST

11 © 2011 1. Cut the cream cheese into chunks and place in the bowl of an electric mixer, with the paddle attachment.  Mix on medium speed for 4 minutes until smooth, soft and creamy.  Add the sugar, beat for 4 minutes more.  Add the salt and vanilla, beating after each addition.  Add the eggs, one at a time, beating for one minute after each addition.  Add the sour cream, beat until incorporated.  Add the heavy cream, beat until incorporated. Remember to scrape down the sides of the mixer bowl, and scrape up any thicker bits of cream cheese that have stuck to the bottom of the mixer that paddle attachment has failed to incorporate. PREPARATION OF FILLING. PREPARING FILLING.

12 © 2011 5 Place the foil-wrapped spring form pan in a large, high-sided roasting pan.  Prepare 2 quarts of boiling water.  Pour the cream cheese filling into the spring form pan, over the graham cracker bottom layer.  Smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Place the roasting pan with the spring form pan in it, in the oven, on the lower rack.  Carefully pour the hot water into the roasting pan (without touching the hot oven), to create a water bath for the cheesecake, pouring until the water reaches halfway up the side of the spring form pan, about 1 1/4 inches.  (Alternatively you can add the water before putting the pan in the oven, whichever is easier for you.) Cook at 325°F for 1 1/2 hours. PREPARTION OF FILLING PREPARATION OF FILLING

13 © 2011 6 Turn off the heat of the oven. Crack open the oven door 1-inch, and let the cake cool in the oven, as the oven cools, for another hour. This gentle cooling will help prevent the cheesecake surface from cracking. 7 Cover the top of the cheesecake with foil, so that it doesn't actually touch the cheesecake. Chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of 4 hours, or overnight. PREPARATION OF FILLING

14 © 2011 8 Place sour cream in a medium sized bowl, stir in the powdered sugar and vanilla, until smooth. Chill until you are ready to serve the cake. Note that this recipe produces enough sour cream topping for a thick topping and some extra to spoon over individual pieces of cheesecake, if desired. If you would like a thinner layer of topping and no extra, reduce the sour cream topping ingredients in half. PREPARE SOUR CREAM TOPPING
