NotesOnce I discovered how easy it was to make cheesecake, store bought has become a thing of the past. They are not only cheaper to make, but so much tastier. I found this recipe in a book called, '125 Best Cheesecakes' and whenever I go to a gathering, this cheesecake is expected to travel with me.
