    acerast's Note:

    My dear MIL always made this cheese cake for special occasions. According to my FIL, when they were dating (1955), she took him out to see her home town, Chicago, and they stopped for cheese cake at the Marshall Fields on State Street. He enjoyed it immensely, she won his heart, and they were married. When Marshall Fields stopped baking their cheese cake she searched until she found a recipe that came close. This is the result, and it is a family tradition. We call it "The Way-to-a-Texas-Boy's-Heart Cheese Cake." (Cooking time includes chill time).

      This recipe was made for the *Diabetic Forums Valentine Dessert Makeover*. I made several changes to reduce the carbs, fat, and sugar. The crust was reduced by half with still plenty for the pie. The cream cheese was Neufhatel Cheese and a combination of sugar and Splenda granular was used in the filling. The sour cream was a light sour cream and only half was used in the topping. The pie even with my changes was very rich and creamy. This makes 8 very generous servings. Each slice was garnished with a red, juicy strawberry. Thanks acerast for letting me make-over your recipe.
