Vanilla Mousse Cheesecake

I made this for my son's prom party for dessert. It was a very yummy cheesecake. The mousse topping makes it extra scrumptious.

40 NILLA Wafers, finely crushed (about 1-1/2 cups)

3 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted

4 pkg. (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese, softened, divided (I used reduced fat)

1 cup sugar, divided

1 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. vanilla, divided

3 eggs

1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed

Heat oven to 325ºF.

Mix wafer crumbs and butter; press onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan.
Beat 3 pkg. cream cheese, 3/4 cup sugar and 1 Tbsp. vanilla with mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Pour over crust.

Bake 50 to 55 min. or until center is almost set. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool completely in pan.

Beat remaining cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with mixer in large bowl until blended. Whisk in COOL WHIP; spread over cheesecake. Refrigerate 4 hours. Remove rim of pan before serving cheesecake.
