Easy Plain Cheesecake

The crust
1 pkg. graham crackers, crushed
1/2 cup melted butter
2 tbsp. white sugar

The filling
2 (8 oz) pkgs. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix graham crackers, butter and sugar. Press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9 in. pie plate. Place plate in the fridge while making the filling.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese & brown sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs & egg yolk. Add in vanilla. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour filling into pie crust. Bake in preheated oven for 30-50 minutes or until filling is set. (Side note: The original recipe says 50 mins but mine was done at 30 min. so I’d start checking it around 30 mins.) This is a great and really simple cheesecake! We loved it! 🙂
