Cheese Cake (gluten free crust)

I Love a great cheesecake and I have done a pistachio cheesecake in the past, but here is a great recipe for a plain cheesecake, and you could top this with fruit if you like!....The great thing about this is that the crust is gluten free, but even if I wasn't gluten free these ingredients make an awesome crust that anyone will enjoy! It is made from Rice Chex cereal!,,,,,you could even use other flavors of chex if you like, Here is what I did.....Enjoy!

3 Cups Rice Chex (crushed)
4 Tablespoons butter (melted)
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoons cinnamon
3 packages cream cheese (softened)
1- 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
4 eggs
1 Cup sour cream
1 Tablespoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350
Prepare crust by adding cereal to a freezer bag and start smashing to finely crush cereal.
Add the crushed cereal to a bowl and add the melted butter and the sugar and cinnamon
Mix well
Press the mixture into a 9-10inch spring form pan and bake for 8 minutes
For filling add the cream cheese to a mixer bowl and whip until fluffy
add the condensed milk and then the eggs one at a time, mixing well and then add the sour cream and vanilla,,,,Keep mixing until smooth, when done pour filling over the crust and bake for 50-55 minutes center will be softer while the edges should be golden......place a shallow bowl of water on bottom rack of oven  while baking to prevent cracking
Let cheesecake cool before refrigerating for 3-4 hours before serving
