2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
7 tablespoons butter, melted
3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 (4-ounce) bar white chocolate, melted and cooled slightly
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, combine cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter. Press firmly on bottom and 1-inch up sides of a 9-inch spring form pan. Bake 8 minutes.
In a large bowl, combine cream cheese and sugar. Beat with an electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in melted chocolate.
Carefully pour batter into the prepared crust. Bake 45 minutes.
Let cool completely on wire rack. Chill 8 hours before serving to set.
