Yummy Maple Cheesecake

Marcia Layden


Last fall, I was assigned dessert by my Supper Club which meets once a month. I thought a nice pumpkin cheesecake would delight them all and be right in step with the season. At the store I began my search for canned pumpkin. There was not a can in the store!!! I paniced! I had promised cheesecake. When I calmed down, I pushed my cart to the magazine department and found a cooking mag. featuring a Maple Cheesecake. Armed with my new recipe I gathered the necessary ingredients. The cheesecake was a howling success and has since been requested by many of my friends. I hope you like it.
