See this delicious cheesecake??? Would you believe me if I told you it was only 5 ingredients (only 3 for the filling!) and easy enough for a 9 year old to prepare? Believe it or not, it's a FACT! Makayla's been having some anxiety issues since moving and to keep her mind off worrying I've been having her scour old Taste of Home magazines for recipes she wants to cook. This recipe was first on the list. Next she'll be preparing pizza out of Texas toast. Not only was this recipe delicious, it was fast and easy. We had a laugh when she turned on the mixer and powdered sugar flew everywhere! Needless to say, the LOW speed on my mixer is far from low! Enjoy :)
