* Ultimate cheesecake -- This recipe is the original creation of a co-worker, Don Chaney. I consider myself a cheesecake gourmet, and I rate this recipe as 8½ out of 10 (However, there are no 10s). The recipe is so simple, I almost feel guilty serving it.

* Variations: Crush some walnuts into the crust. Pour a can of cherry or blueberry pie filling over the chilled cake, then chill again. Put about 2-3 T of your favorite liqueur into the cake filling.

: Difficulty: easy to moderate.

: Time: 10 minutes preparation, 40 minutes baking, overnight cooling.

: Precision: measure the ingredients.
