The title of this recipe says it all. It's a heavy, very rich cheesecake that feeds quite a few people, since the slices can be on the thinner side due to it's richness. Remember, don't open up the oven door until you're supposed to!!!! (NOTE: Times given do not include chilling time, which should be about 3 hours.)

Good recipe, but the cottage cheese didn't break down and left a strange texture to the cheesecake. I'll try this again.
