Personal Notes:
I got this recipe from "Savor the Flavor of Oregon" cookbook. It is the most impressive, best tasting cheesecake you'll ever taste. Most important is to make the cheesecake a day in advance because after being refrigerated, the flavors blend and
'set" and it will taste twice as good.
