Deluxe Chip Cheesecake Recipe
My husband and I love cheesecake. Once, when we were asked to make a dessert for a "traveling basket" for our church, we prepared this luscious layered treat. It looked so good, we couldn't bear to give it away. We ended up contributing another sweet treat instead! —Kari Gollup Madison, Wisconsin
