Decadent and delicious, this recipe comes from a Herberger's cookbook. My favorite homemade cheesecake.

Here it is. Freshly popped from the pan. Going to sit overnight and finish setting. So far it's super dense. Just how I like it. I will add, I baked it for 75 minutes instead of an hour. I like mine to have that dark crust. Just a preference.
