Lucille’s Cheese Cake

[vc_row full_width=”stretch_row”][vc_column width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]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!
