  • Mix crumbs, butter, and 3 tablespoons sugar until combined; press firmly onto the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan.

  • Beat cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, and vanilla in a mixing bowl until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed until just blended. Pour over crust.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until center is almost set, about 55 minutes. Loosen cake from the pan rim; cool before removing rim.

  • Refrigerate for 4 hours before serving.

Tips

Reduce the oven temperature to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) if using a dark nonstick springform pan.
