I wasn't a cheesecake fan until my granddaughter made this one. I have it in a family cookbook honoring Myrtle Herold's 83rd Birthday, in 1987. Grandma Herold was my step-grandma and notorious in Peoria, Il. for being an excellent cook and baker. This is an easy and delicious recipe. I have used a dollop of Strawberry preserves on each serving when I didn't have pie filling.
