                         -----CRUST-----
    1 1/2  cups          Fine graham cracker crumbs
      1/4  cup           Granulated sugar
      1/2  cup           Butter -- softened
                         -----FILLING-----
    1      pound         Cream cheese
    1      cup           Sour cream
    2      tablespoons   Cornstarch
    1      cup           Granulated sugar
    2      tablespoons   Butter -- softened
    1      teaspoon      Vanilla extract -- or flavor
                         -----TOPPING-----
      3/4  cup           Sour cream
      1/4  cup           Powdered sugar
 
 Preheat oven to 375 F. For crust combine crumbs, sugar and butter and mix
 well. Press firmly into 9 pie-pan covering bottom only. Bake for 8 min.,
 or until the edges are slightly brown. Reduce oven to 350 F. For filling,
 combine cheese, sour cream, cornstarch, and sugar in bowl of mixer. Mix
 until sugar has dissolved. Add the butter and vanilla and blend until
 smooth. Be careful not to  overmix, or the filling will become too fluffy
 and will crack when  cooling. Pour the filling over the crust. Bake for 30
 to 35 min., or until  knife inserted 1 from edge comes out clean. Cool 1
 hr. For topping, mix  sour cream and powdered sugar. Spread mixture over
 top of cooled  cheesecake. Chill or freeze until ready to eat.
