No one made better cheesecake than my mom. Light and creamy, it was a staple at all family get togethers—in fact, it was such a staple, that Lael had the recipe made into an ornament, just as she did with Grandma LaVerne’s Potato Salad and Aunt Ida’s Crumb Cake. Lael may have intended the ornament for our Christmas tree, but we keep it in the kitchen all year as a keepsake and a reference. I hope that you enjoy this cheesecake—my mom would be proud to share it.

Thanks Mom…love you, miss you…and my cheesecake Never turns out as good as yours…😉
