Simple Cheesecake

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Countrywife

Adapted from a recipe I found in Sunset magazine around 1970. Back in those bad old days there were no frozen cheesecakes and recipes for cheesecake were few and far between. My mother loved cheesecakes and was thrilled when I found a recipe. This makes a firm, dense product. Preparation time doesn't include cooling.
