I got this recipe from my mother. I have been making it myself for the last 18 years and my family just adores it. It is a christmas tradition in our house!

This is the cheesecake i grew up with. Its my husbands favourite. This is not like a baked cheesecake. This cheesecake is much lighter. Its so wonderfully simple too! Make sure to use real whipping cream. My mom started using cool whip. It SUCKS.
