Vanilla Mousse Cheesecake
40 Nilla Wafers, crushed (about 1 1/2 cups)
3 tbsp. butter, melted
4  8 oz. pkgs/ cream cheese, softened, divided
1 c. sugar, divided
1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. vanilla, divided
3 ggs
1  8 oz. Cool Whip - thawed

Heat your oven to 325 degrees.  Mix wafer crumbs and butter and press into bottom of springform pan.  Beat 3 pkg. of cream cheese, 3/4 c. sugar and 1 tbsp. vanilla with mixer until well blended, beat in eggs 1 and a time.  Pour over crust.  Bake 50-55 minutes or until center is almost set.  Cool completely in pan.  Beat remaining pkg. cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with mixter, until well blended.  Stir in the cool whip.  Spread this over the cooled cheesecake.  Chill for 4 hours.  Serve!  Don't forget to invite me over when you make this one!
