This recipe was handed down to me by my mother. Every holiday my siblings (all seven of us) and I would request this awesome cake along with the homemade fruit topping. It's gotten so she'd have to create two cakes, due to there never being enough.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Um, can you say CREAMY?! This is a great basic cheesecake recipe that Jacqueline's mother passed down to her along with a method to prevent cracking. Cheesecakes take time and patience to make (and can be intimidating), but if you follow these easy directions you'll have a decadent, crack-free cheesecake. It's light in texture and very creamy. Almost the texture of no-bake cheesecake. The crust is buttery with a hint of cinnamon. Drizzle the berry mixture on top for the perfect pop of flavor. It complements the cheesecake wonderfully. We topped ours with a little whipped cream too. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
