Heat oven to 350°F.

Combine cookie crumbs and butter in bowl. Press onto bottom of ungreased 9-inch springform pan. Bake 10 minutes.

Melt morsels in bowl on Medium-high (70% power) 1 minute; stir. Continue microwaving, stirring often, 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Cool 15 minutes or to room temperature.

Combine sugar, cream cheese and vanilla in bowl. Beat at high speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth. Add eggs; mix well. Gradually beat in melted white morsels.
