READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Lvs2Cook

I made this for a Christmas party and everyone gave it rave reviews. I made it the day before the party to make sure it was chilled well. The recipe originally came from a message board on AOL posted by Steph. It's a winner!

I made this cheesecake for my family for as a Thanksgiving dessert and it turned out great. Because I was short on time, I used the store-bought graham cracker crust and this recipe made 3 cheesecakes. This turned out to be a good thing because by the end of the night everyone had gobbled up the first 2 and we had one left to keep for ourselves. Two thumbs up...people are still asking for the recipe. Thanks for posting.
