This is the one recipe that my father's mother made that everyone wanted. She gave it to my mother, who then gave it to me. It is the only cheesecake that I will eat. I make it with Splenda every year at the holidays for the family get togethers.

top with your favorite fruit or canned pie filling you can even drizzle some chocolate sauce or fruit filling onto the cake before baking and swirl When using splenda the cake doesn't come out quite as big.. but it is still so good that no one complains. (I snuck it in one year and no one even noticed.)
