|Jodies Kitchen Creamy Cheesecake|
Another fantastic recipe which was passed down from Mom.
I am not a big Cheesecake Baker.I normally stick to the ones that are no bake. Some Cheesecakes I have found can have a little dry texture to them which I don't like.This however is very creamy and delicious.
Its all from Scratch so no Shortcuts here. I honestly don't like my Crust with the nuts,but but you could very easily make a crust without if you wish,or use one bought from the store.
The topping is always optional,and any would be fine with this.Or just leave it without. This was just a simple strawberry topping.
