  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs

In a small bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar and cinnamon. Add melted butter and mix until evenly blended.

Press the graham cracker mix into the bottom of an 8 or 9 inch springform pan.

In the bowl of your stand mixer (or any large bowl), beat together the cream cheese and vanilla extract. Add sugar and mix until blended.
