I was looking up cheesecake recipes, and they all either seemed too hard or needed baking. I made this up, it's sort of a combination of several of the recipes I found. The consistency is lovely, and it's pretty addictive. It is very rich, that's how I like it. I suppose you could freeze it if you wanted, but I haven't tried. It was perfectly good from the fridge. Excellent topped in homemade whipped cream!!
