One of Chads favorite desserts is Cheesecake. Not just any old cheesecake, but cheesecake with a BIG EXTRA THICK crust. The more crust the better.
In a bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and sugar. Pat evenly onto the bottom and all the way up the sides of a 8-in. springform pan. Chill for 15 minutes.
Beat cream cheese and eggs in a stand mixer on medium speed for 1 minute. Add 1/3 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla and salt. Continue beating until well blended, approximately 1 minute. Carefully pour into crust.
Bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature. Chill until ready to serve.
