Grandma Hambly's Cheesecake

6-8 large graham crackers
1/2 stick butter, melted

Finely crush graham crackers. Pour crushed graham crackers into a springform pan, spreading them evenly. Melt butter, and pour on top of graham crackers. USe the butter to smoosh the graham crackers together.

16 oz. cream cheese
3 eggs, separated
dash salt
dash cinnamon
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. sugar

Mix cream cheese, egg yolks, salt, cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar. Blend well. In a separate bowl, whip egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold eggs whites into cream cheese mixture. Pour the entire mixture on top of the prepared graham cracker crust. Bake for 45 min, 350 degrees. Take out of oven, spread topping over cheesecake. Put back in oven and bake for another 5 min. Cool 2-3 hrs. before serving (but it is better the next day)

1 1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 tsp. vanilla
5 tsp. sugar
dash salt

Mix all ingredients together, blend well. Pour on top of cheesecake after it has baked for 45 min (See above directions) Enjoy!

*This cheesecake is Ryan's grandma's recipes. It is amazing and relatively simple. We have served it with fruit, with chocolate, with caramel, and just by itself--and it is amazing every way you try it!
