“ADDITIONAL INFORMATION This is most excellent if you're a cheese cake fan! While this isn't a traditional cheese cake, this is a superior CREAM cheese cake recipe. It's home made cheese cake, but it's not New York style. It's Southern style and it has a wonderful lemony flavor. ABOUT THE ICING This is a very versatile recipe as you can finish this one off any way you like. You can use canned pie filling (any flavor), you can make a standard butter cream icing to drizzle over the top, or you can purchase a commercial cream cheese frosting, warm it in the microwave and drizzle THAT over the top. I like them all. *LOL*.”
