It's-A-Snap Cheesecake

An all-time favorite with everyone at home!
I like to snack on one whenever I'm hungry.
It's easy to make too, and make a good snack for the boys after school.

Base of Cheesecake :

1 packet Honey Grahams Crackers
1 stick Butter, Melted
1 tsp Cinnamon (Optional)

1. Put the packet of crackers into a ziploc bag.
2. Seal the bag, removing as much air as possible.
3. Lay the bag flat on the table, crushed the crackers using a rolling pin.
4. Pour the finely crushed crackers into a big bowl.
5. Stir the melted butter into the crushed crackers.
6. Press down on pan lined with aluminium foil (or use a springform pan).
7. Set in refrigerator for about 30 mins, till firm.

Cake Filling :

1 packet (8 0z) Cream Cheese, Softened
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
1 envelope Knox Unflavoured Gelatine

1. Mix gelatine with the cup of boiling water.
2. Stir till gelatine completely dissolves.
3. Add sugar to gelatine solution. Stir till sugar completely dissolves.
4. Beat cream cheese and vanilla in a large bowl with mixer until smooth.
