“This recipe is different from most cheesecake recipes and it's my son's favorite. The cheesecake puffs up some and then settles back down after cooling. There is no crust and I usually top with a can of cherry pie filling but you can use any type of topping you want. The recipe is from a cookbook put together by an organization I was in a few years ago called To The Rescue.”
1 cheesecake

  2. Mix topping ingredients together and pour on cheesecake. Bake an additional 7 minutes at 350º to set the top. Cool, chill and, before serving, top with a can of pie filling.
