Aunt Ruth's Famous Butterscotch Cheesecake

Aunt Ruth was our nanny when I was little and made this cheesecake often. Since it had to chill overnight, it was torture when my sister and I had to wait until the next day to have a piece. When I visited my old neighborhood and stopped by her house, she offered me a piece of that wonderful cheesecake. I made sure to leave with a copy of the recipe! —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
