Step 1: In a large bowl mix the wafer crumbs and melted butter, press into a 9 or 10 inch springform pan (I like using the 10 inch use the 9 inch when wanting thicker slices, I like to bake my wafer crusts for 5 minutes in a pre heated 350 oven, cool before filling
Step 2: For those who prefer to have their slices without the cherry topping save 1/4 cup of crumbs to sprinkle on top of the cheesecake and serve the cherries on the side.
Step 3: Mix cream cheese, vanilla and sugar using a hand mixer whip until smooth
Step 4: Whip cream add in 3 – 4 tablespoons sugar, add to cream cheese mix, whip until smooth and creamy pour into chilled wafer crust
Step 5: Refrigerate
Step 6: Top with cherries just before serving
