This rich and flavorful cheesecake uses an abundance of dairy products. Even though the cake doesn't have a crust, I guarantee everyone will love it. —Mrs. George Parsell, Flushing, New York

"Got loads of compliments on this recipe! Light, very tasty and easy to make.

It was just a little bit softer than I thought it should be so next time I will add a little more flour or cornstarch. This one is a keeper!!"
