Mom's Cheese Pie

On occasion, I find cheesecake to be way too rich. Don't get me wrong, its absolutely delicious. However, I often want the flavor and creaminess without the heaviness. This is the answer! My mom made this for years and it was always our favorite. I know it will be your favorite go-to recipe too!!
