Mona’s Cheesecake

Updated: Jan 4

Yesterday would have been my parents anniversary. Today is one of my brother’s birthday. So I thought I would post a recipe to honor both. Mona was my mom. She was a wonderful cook. I only hope I can cook as well as she did. I know that this recipe is a favorite of my brother Ken. His wife, Edna, has been known to make multiple cheesecakes for holidays. It is a wonderful dessert on a warm evening.
