Recipe by Polly_Waffle_Kid

I found this recipe on one of my mothers Woman's Weekly magazine recipe cards that she was sent about a million years ago! I only remember making this cheesecake once with my mother when I was really young and i also remember that I have been trying to find a cheesecake similar to it every since!! Hope you enjoy it! Cooking time includes chilling time.
