White Cheesecake Recipe

Winter Wonderland White Cheesecake Recipe

But First Desserts
When I see the results from this White Cheesecake recipe, it makes me think of the song below. Although I don't "love" snow, I know it is inevitable every year since we live in New York state. Some would say 'why don't you move?' I say because my family is more important than the snow and cold we get each year and they are mostly here.
