A few years ago, I was sitting in the waiting room waiting for my husband to finish a visit with his doctor. While I was waiting and thumbing through a magazine, I found this recipe. What caught my eye about it was that it didn't require a springform pan for baking the cheesecake. I immediately copied down the recipe and tried it upon returning home. It was without a doubt, one of the best cheesecakes I ever tasted! It does require a little work, but oh so worth it! This recipe has been a hit with my family and with many a church pot luck since. Hope that y'all enjoy it as much as we have!
