Crust: Mix graham cracker crumbs and butter together; press firmly over bottom of pan.

Filling: Mix sugar and cornstarch in a large bowl.

Add cream cheese and beat with a mixer on medium speed until smooth.

Beat in eggs and vanilla just until mixed, scraping down the sides of bowl as needed.

On low speed, add cream; beat just to blend.
