For smoothest and easiest mixing, make sure all your refrigerated ingredients are at room temperature. This includes:
First, bake off your Graham cracker crust at 350F for 12 minutes.
If you want to be super fancy, click HERE to get the recipe for homemade Graham crackers and use those!
Mix everything on low-to-medium speed in this order:
2)sugar, brown sugar, salt
3)cinnamon and vanilla
5)Eggs, 1 at a time
The batter will be thick and luscious, so don't rush the process by trying to add all the ingredients at once.
As you mix, make sure to scrape the bowl frequently.
Pour/scrape the batter into the Graham cracker crust.
If making for Mardi Gras, hide a pecan half somewhere in the batter.
The person who gets that slice makes the cake next year!
Smooth the top of the batter with an offset spatula.
You can also just shake the pan to level the batter. It will finish smoothing out as it heats in the oven.
Bake in a hot water bath until the middle of the cheesecake registers 160F on an instant-read thermometer.

Cool the cake in the oven with the door propped open, then on the counter, and then chill.
Decorate as desired, but here's what I did for Mardi Gras.
