  • Crust:
    • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • Filling:
    • 3 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 3 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream


  • 9-inch springform pan
  • Mixing bowls
  • Electric mixer
  • Spatula
  • Aluminum foil

Step 1: Make the Crust

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Mix well until the mixture resembles wet sand.
  3. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan.
  4. Bake the crust for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.

Step 2: Make the Filling

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add the sugar and beat until well combined, about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. Stir in the vanilla extract and heavy cream until well combined.
  5. Pour the filling into the cooled crust, smoothing the top with a spatula.

Step 3: Bake the Cheesecake

  1. Wrap the bottom and sides of the springform pan with aluminum foil to prevent leaks.
  2. Place the pan in a large, shallow baking dish and add enough hot water to the dish to reach about halfway up the sides of the pan.
  3. Bake the cheesecake for 45-50 minutes, or until the edges are set and the center is still slightly jiggly.
  4. Turn off the oven and let the cheesecake cool inside for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove the pan from the water bath and let it cool to room temperature on a wire rack.

Step 4: Chill the Cheesecake

  1. Cover the cheesecake with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.

Step 5: Serve the Cheesecake

  1. Remove the sides of the springform pan and transfer the cheesecake to a serving plate.
  2. Serve the cheesecake chilled, topped with fresh fruit, whipped cream, or your favorite toppings.

Tips for Making the Best Cheesecake

  • Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature before you start making the filling. This will help ensure a smooth and creamy filling.
  • Don’t overmix the filling, as this can cause cracks to form on the top of the cheesecake as it bakes.
  • Bake the cheesecake in a water bath to help prevent it from over-browning and cracking.
  • Let the cheesecake cool to room temperature before refrigerating to prevent condensation from forming on the top.

With these simple steps, you’ll be able to make a delicious homemade cheesecake in no time! Give it a try and enjoy the creamy and satisfying taste of this classic dessert. Happy baking!
