What to do with Cream Cheese Part 2

As mentioned last Wednesday, Smiths is having a mega sale and one of the items is Philadelphia Cream Cheese.  With the printable coupon of $5/5 printable and printing it twice, you can get 10 for free. Again, that is FREE!   I called Audrey after my Smiths trip to let her know--I was elated.  Ha! For the next 24 hours, I shared this with all I talked with.  Funny, I know. (The sale on cream cheese ends a week from today). I wanted to make a New York Cheesecake for friends which calls for 4 packages of cream cheese.  I used a recipe from the JOY OF BAKING.    You will need a spring form pan for this type of cheesecake.  The only substitution was using cinnamon graham crackers instead of regular graham crackers.  The cinnamon flavor was not strong (because it was only in the crust).  It was a nice touch, I thought.   Here is a quick list of items needed for this cheesecake: Crust: 2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs 1/4 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted Filling: 4 - 8
