   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2   c            Crushed graham crackers
                         -(1 package)
      1/4   c            Sugar
    5       tb           Melted butter
 
   Mix the graham crackers and sugar, then add butter and
   mix with a fork until completely moistened.  Press
   mixture into the bottom and up 1/3rd of the side of a
   9-inch springform pan.  Refrigerate for 1 hour.
   
   Variations:  Use ginger snaps instead of graham
   crackers for a spicier crust or for cakes like
   pumpkin.  Use chocolate wafers instead of graham
   crackers for a chocolate, white chocolate, or certain
   fruit-flavored or ~topped cheesecakes like raspberry,
   cherry, or orange. For a sweeter, moister crust (do
   this only if the cheesecake is going to get eaten
   quickly, because it gets mushy faster) use brown sugar
   instead of white.
