Ingredients

For the Crust:

  • 1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/3 cup salted butter, melted

For the filling:

  • 24 oz. cream cheese, room temprature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Pie Pan Size:

  • 10 inch, though a 9 inch will work in a pinch

Instructions

Make the crust:

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. In a small bowl mix the graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Add this mixture into a 10 inch pie pan. Pat down with your hands or the bottom of a drinking glass. Place in oven for 5-7 minutes or until slightly browned. Won't take long.
  • After the pie shell is done cooking remove from oven onto cooling sheet or pot holder and lower the oven temperature to 250 degrees. 
  • In a large bowl add the cream cheese, eggs, sugar and vanilla. Blend together with a hand mixer or a stand mixer with the blade attachement. Blend for 2-3 minutes until fluffy and combined.
  • Pour the filling into the prepared pie crust. Smooth out the filling with a spatula. Place in the 250 degree oven for 45 minutes.
  • When the baking time is done place on a cooling rack in the fridge for at least 4 hours. Serve and enjoy. Keep refrigerated. Serve with desired topping, though no topping is really needed.
