This easy recipe was given to me years ago by my grandmother when I was just learning how to cook. It's an easy recipe for new bakers or for kids who are learning how to bake. I still make it today because it is a favorite of my cheesecake loving husband and it's a quick go to when trying to make a dessert for a potluck!!
