Another family recipe and story, and what I think is the BEST cheesecake recipe

I call this Pauline’s cheese cake because in the early 60’s Pauline Inkster was the wife of E.R.’s boss and a dear lady. She cherished her cheese cake recipe and would not share it until they left Houston. Therefore, when they were transferred she gave me the recipe.
