    Bev's Note:

    I found this recipe clipping within my Mother's Recipe Box. It looks very old and well used. I have seen other Lindy's recipes listed within Zaar, however the ingredient amounts do vary. I hope you will enjoy it. Cooking time includes time to chill.

      This recipe should come with a caution-WARNING: this New York-style cheesecake makes sweet Southern church ladies turn into ravenous wolves, lol! My dad has been baking since he was a teenager (since his mother was from China and did not bake American desserts like pie and cheesecake, my dad baked them for himself.) He is known for his awesome strawberry cheesecake, and Lindy's Cheesecake with Strawberry Glaze is the only recipe that he uses (since before I was born). My father was banned from making this decadent dessert for our church's bake-off, so he made my mom's recipe for strawberry pie and won anyway. Lindy's cheesecake's rich, smooth filling and flaky pastry lightly flavored with tangy citrus zests and strawberry topping make an irresistible flavor combination. When my dad made a couple of these cheesecakes for my friend's wedding shower, the church ladies were literally fighting over leftovers. Nevertheless, I still managed to sneak him home one sweet slice! Thank you, Bev, for sharing this world-famous classic.
