In a large bowl using a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer, add cream cheese and beat until smooth and creamy. Make sure not to over-beat.

Step 4:

Add sugar and mix well.

Step 5:

Stir in sour cream, vanilla extract, and salt until combined. Make sure to scrape the sides and bottom with a spatula if you are using a stand mixer.

Step 6:

Set the mixer on low speed, then gradually add lightly beaten eggs, one at a time. Scrape the sides and bottom again and make sure everything is well combined.

Step 7:

Transfer the cheesecake batter into your prepared pan. Place the pan on a cookie sheet that’s been lined with foil to prevent leaks.

Using a knife, gently loosen the crust from the inside of the pan. Do not remove the ring.
