Begin by assembling your ingredients: cream cheese, eggs, sugar, sour cream, and a graham cracker crust.
Combine softened cream cheese with sugar until smooth.
Blend in eggs one at a time, ensuring a creamy texture.
Stir in sour cream and vanilla extract for richness.
Pour mixture into the graham cracker crust and prepare for baking.
Bake at 325°F for about an hour until set.
Cool the cheesecake gradually, then refrigerate for several hours.
Serve chilled, optionally with fruit toppings or whipped cream.
