Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe was handed down from my Aunt Paula: "When this recipe was given to me 30 years ago I was told to bake the cheesecake no longer than 25 minutes. I like a more firm cheesecake, so I leave the cake in the oven and turn it off. I take the cheesecake out when the oven is cool."
