“This was a NO-BAKE cheesecake published by the California Apricot Advisory Board in the mid 1970's. I did not like the NO-BAKE corn flake crust so I have substituted one that has to be baked and cooled before having the cream cheese filling added. It is a pretty cake as well as delicious. Cook time is chill time except for the crust that bakes for approximately 8 minutes.”
