“I laughed at the Golden Girls when they faced their conundrum, over a cheesecake and this is the cheesecake to end all cheesecakes, not to mention conundrums! Simple to make and really to die for.. Thanks to a cousin and his part-time job in a local deli, this secret recipe, sold by the slice, is truly worth its weight in gold. So, thank you David, and everyone enjoy!”
