Cheesecake Factory Banana Cream Cheesecake

If you love bananas and cheesecake then you will want to make this!

20 vanilla sandwich cookies
1/4 cup butter, melted
24 ounces cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3 eggs
3/4 cup mashed bananas
1/2 cup whipping cream
2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 350º F. Place cookies in a blender; process with on/off pulse until finely crushed. Add butter; process with pulses until blended. Press crumb mixture into bottom of a 10-inch springform pan; refrigerate. Beat cream cheese in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Add sugar and cornstarch; beat until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in bananas, whipping cream and vanilla. Pour cream cheese mixture into prepared crust. Place pan on cookie sheet and bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven temp. to 200º F and continue baking for 75 minutes or until center is almost set. Loosen edge of cheesecake; cool completely on wire rack before removing rim of pan. Refrigerate cheesecake, uncovered, 6 hours or overnight.

Then I used the remaining whipping cream and 1 tablespoon of sugar to make whipped cream to add to the top.
