My husband "made me" learn this recipe from his mom. It was a favorite of his growing up. It still is though I don't make it very often.

I did bake and supply these cheesecakes to a neighborhood deli owned by a friend of mine many years ago.

The hardest part about this recipe is making yourself wait 24 hours before eating the finished product. Seriously, it does make a noticeable difference.
