Jeannies' Magical Strawberry Cheesecake

Al Smith


I was lucky to have Jeannies in my life. One, who was the wife of my friend Mike, brought me this cheesecake in 1989. The other was my wife for 32 years who made this for me anytime I asked.
It is magical because how could anything this easy be so good.
