Caramel Cheesecake

Anna Taylor


My family loves cheesecake, and this is the recipe I use.

After having made this cheesecake for years, the only things I alter is I add a little more butter to the crust. I have found that the amount called for is just a little shy of what's needed. And I omit the grated lemon peel.

This cheesecake is so rich and scrumptious!
