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.
