I got this recipe from a friend after I was completely bowled over by it. I'm not a great cheesecake lover but have decided to add this recipe to my list of greats. Seriously, if you're not a cheesecake fan, this recipe might turn you into one!

"This recipe is from 1956: Popes' Cookbook by Chef Francois Pope. I have an autographed copy :-). The proper name of this is Hollywood Two-Tone Cheesecake. You can Google the original recipe. Ipreleaving out the cinnamon."

It was ok. I didn't think it was 'the best cheese cake I've ever had'. I doubt I would make it again. I'm a fan of real NY style cheese cake.
