Since getting a springform pan for my birthday, I've been collecting cheesecake recipes and finding the ones I had in my flies. This one was scribbled on an index card from who-knows-when. I hate not to give credit where it's due, but that was before Zaar. I love 7-UP and who doesn't love strawberries?? The passive time is chill time.
