The crisp, tart, smooth taste of a real authentic cheesecake is tasted in this basic cheesecake recipe. No frills or fluff is needed to embellish this true taste. The recipe is for a real cheesecake lover. They won't be disappointed. The fact that it's simple and easy has given me a great way of serving a good cheesecake with my limited talent in cheesecake making.

    NOTE: This cheesecake is great alone. If you want to embellish it a little: 2 Cups water, 1/2 Cup powdered sugar, 1/4 cup Raspberry jam, 1 T cornstarch. 1 Cup FROZEN raspberries. In small saucepan over medium heat, combine water, powdered sugar, jam and cornstarch. Cook and stir until thickened and clear. Stir in frozen raspberries. When cooled, put a spoonful of raspberry topping in center of a slice. Not too much so the real cheesecake will be tasted.
