Simple Cheesecake

This simple dessert was a recipe given to me by a co-worker many years ago. I love recipes with a few ingredients and this one fit that requirement. When we first began making it we would even take time at work to prepare pies that went home with everyone for their evening dessert. It was a great way to enjoy our comrades while preparing for our family time.
