MIX all ingredients; press onto bottoms of 4 foil-lined half-steam table pans (or onto bottom of 1 foil-lined half-steam table pan for trial recipe). Set aside while preparing filling

BEAT cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla in 12-qt. bowl (or in 6-qt. bowl for trial recipe) of mixer fitted with paddle attachment 1 min. Scrape paddle, side and bottom of bowl. Beat an additional 1 min. Blend in sour cream on low speed just until combined. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing after each addition just until blended. Pour evenly over crusts.

BAKE in 300ºF-convection oven 25 to 27 min. or until centers are almost set, rotating pans after 15 min. Cool completely. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.

REMOVE Cheesecakes from pans. Trim and discard 1/4-inch-wide piece from each side; cut each trimmed cheesecake into 35 rectangles.

STACK 5 phyllo squares for each bundle, brushing butter between layers; brush top with butter. Place cheesecake piece in center of phyllo. Fold 1 corner of phyllo square over cheesecake, then fold 2 opposite sides of phyllo over cheesecake. Lightly brush edges of unfolded corner with water before folding over cheesecake. Press seams together lightly to seal. Place, seam-sides down, in single layer in parchment paper-lined sheet pans. Refrigerate 1 hour.

BRUSH bundles with remaining butter. Bake in 400ºF-convection oven 6 to 8 min. or until lightly browned. Serve warm.
