My husband and I wanted a cheesecake to celebrate our anniversary (our 44th). Since we're in a rural area, it's not like The Cheesecake Factory is right around the corner. So I used the ingredients I had on hand and WOW! Easy to make (my Kitchen Aid stand mixer made it EXTRA easy),no heating up the oven, no hoping it doesn't crack on top, and GLUTEN-FREE! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
