READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by cnpick05

I made this for our family christmas party and everyone loved it! Since it is a plain cheesecake I put cherry pie filling, strawberry pie filling and caramel sauce to the side in different bowls so they could put on top whatever they wanted or you can put on top whatever you prefer. It's even good just plain! I got this recipe out of a Philadelphia cook book. If you love cheesecake you will love this!

This is one of the best cheesecakes everrrr! My mother-in-law and sister-in-law always make cheesecakes for any and all holiday gatherings. And everyone raves about how good it is. The two of them always made is sound like it was a big effort to make so I never asked for the recipe nor was I interested in trying.. But after me making this recipe my family and myself have found this to be a better cheesecake and I find that it is so simple to make and I have to say it taste so much better than my in-law's cheesecake. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful recipe.
