Recipe Tips

- If you don’t have a springform pan, line a (9-inch) round baking pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over pan edges. Remove cheesecake using foil ends.

- To quickly crush crackers for crust, place into food processor bowl fitted with metal blade. Pulse, a few seconds at a time, until the crackers form fine crumbs.
