Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is my Grandma Russell's recipe. It comes with strict orders not to peek or you'll get a crack in the cheesecake. She suggests using a larger than 8 1/2 inch spring pan. I suggest having a large mixing bowl. This is one of the first things I learned to make on my own. Enjoy!
