Lucille Brown was our neighbor on 46th Avenue in San Francisco. She was a good cook and definitely made a good cheesecake. I’ve been making a variation of her cheese cake for years, but just found her original recipe.
It’s literally been years and years since I had the original.
I shall have to make one this week!
