Murph's Cheesecake

We (the Strattons) got this from our neighbor, Murph, in Texas. This is the best New York style cheesecake I think we've ever had. The crust is the best part!

1 pkg graham crackers, crushed
1 1/3 cups sugar
1/2 cups of chopped nuts, optional
4 T melted butter
Mix together and press on bottom and slightly up the sides of a spring form pan.

2 8oz packages cream cheese
2 8oz cartons whipped cream cheese
2 cups sugar
1 t salt
2 pints sour cream
2 T cornstarch
6 Extra large eggs

Beat cheeses and sugar well then add other ingredients, except eggs. Add eggs one at a time. Pour into crust and bake 1 hour at 375. Turn oven off and leave cake in oven for 1 hour. No peeking except to cover with foil towards end of baking time to keep top from over browning.

This cheesecake is heaven. I'm putting it on my list of things to make when I can eat dairy again.
