No Redeeming Value Cream Cheese Pie

“So named because it's all dairy and sugar. Not sure where I got this one, but most likely from a Jewish cookbook. Tastes like cheesecake, just not as "fluffy." Re: leaving the pie in the oven for an hour, I've tried this recipe in both an electric and a gas oven, and it worked with both.”
