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!
