Mom's Cheesecake

Lynn Jacques


This cheesecake bakes into it's own crust. It has been a family tradition to have this cheesecake for New Year's Day. My mom made it every year, and the card I use is written in her own pen and makes me feel as if she is still here with me. I serve the toppings on the side.
