White Chocolate Cheesecake

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Marg CaymanDesigns

An elegantly simple yet luscious cheesecake. Good with a variety of toppings or sauces (raspberry being our favorite) but our personal preference is to enjoy it "as is". Easily the best cheesecake I've ever eaten.

I made this for a church potluck, and everyone absolutely loved it. I was informed by Marg that I was using the wrong pan for the cheesecake, so please when making this use the springform pan. It makes a world of difference!! Thanks for the recipe.
