    Britt O's sweetie pie's Note:

    I started making this cheesecake back in the early 80's. I went to a Southern Living Cooking Class and it was on the menu. My mother and friends always ask me to make this on special occasions. It is time consuming but I guarantee you it is wonderful.

      May God bless and keep you. You have no idea how much it means to me to have found this recipe. It is the best gift I have ever received. My mother made this cheese cake every Christmas and was my birthday cake every year as well. She passed away 2 years ago and my step father destroyed all of her belongings. I thought I'd never have this recipe of hers. I cannot thank you enough for posting it. I am going to make this cheesecake today and give it to my mother's sister for an early gift. My mother always made her one for Christmas too! I know that it will be the best gift she could have hoped for. Thanks to you, this very special part of my mother will be with us again this Christmas and all of those to come.Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
