VERY rich and VERY tasty recipe. My mom made it up and it is close to her Polish cheesecakes(lots of eggs). It makes a lot of servings but I'm sure it could be halved (taking away or adding an egg). Eat once a year because the flavour and heaviness may last a while!!

Mallina, This was my first try at cheesecake from scratch,(I always made the no-cook box ones);) Lazy mans way :) This cheesecake was excellent,and VERY rich. I will make it again someday(for something Special) but not often,because of all the egg yolks,(I have to watch my cholesterol).I just wanted to do ths once in my life,and it was worth the effort, Thanks for an excellent recipe!!!
