I made it several times. It is always a favorite. Follow the recipe exactly and you won't have any leftover from the church supper.

This is an awesome cheesecake. I have made many cheesecakes from scratch, but this one tops them all. I added 2 teaspoons more of the coffee granules for a little more coffee flavor in the second one I made. Everyone in our house, and a couple of our neighbors loved it too...Cheesecakes are quite easy to make if you really enjoy baking, and this recipe is just great.
