April's Easy "Real" Cheesecake Recipe

As you can probably tell by the last few posts of recipes - I REALLY like things with cream cheese!  I promise I do have dessert recipes that are not in a cheesecake type form.  As long as I am on a roll with the cheesecake theme this week here is my favorite recipe for cheesecake that is easy too!  Now I am picky on my cheesecake.  No jello type mixes for me.  I like it to be dense and thick, if you know what I mean. :)  
Now that I have you drooling, here is the recipe...

April's Easy Cheesecake
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
Combine ingredients and pat firmly on bottom of 9 inch spring form pan.
3 (8oz) pkgs cream cheese
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla

In a large bowl, beat cheese until fluffy.  Add sweetened condensed milk.  Beat until smooth.  Add remaining ingredients and mix well.  Pour into prepared pan.
Bake 1 hour and 5 minutes @ 350 or until cake springs back when lightly touched.  Cool to room temperature and chill.

For Chocolate Cheesecake:
Add 8-12 oz melted chocolate chips to the batter before pouring it into the pan.
