Personal Notes:
The original recipe was given to my by Bel Detloff, my secretary at Holy Angels School in East St. Louis. It makes a large, more solid type of cheese cake. I have often make it for faculty get-togethers. Swirl in 1/2 to 3/4 cup of armaretto just before baking to give it a special twist.
