To serve, run small knife or spatula around side of the pan to loosen crust, then remove side of pan. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
Cheesecake can also be prepared in 13x9-inch pan. Prepare as directed, pressing all of the crumb mixture onto bottom of pan. If you line the pan with parchment paper, waxed paper, or plastic wrap, it will be easier to remove the cake after cooling.
