About 20 years ago, my mother tasted our cousin Joanie's cheesecake for the first time and fell in love! Since then this is the only cheesecake my mom makes. It's one of my favorites too as well as my kids. Again, this is a family recipe that just keeps getting pasted down and no one knows how or who started making it. Hope you enjoy as well.
