In Honor of Dad's 75th Birthday Today...

We always celebrate Dad's birthday with a slice of his favorite cheesecake.  Made best by Mom, of course...

"Mom's" Cheesecake - servings depend on how much you like cheesecake...

1. Combine crust ingredients and press into the bottom of a spring form pan.  Bake 10-15 minutes at 375.  Cool.
2. Use a beater to combine all ingredients but cinnamon in filling - 1st layer.  Pour into cooled crust.  Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.  Turn off oven, open door and let pie cool there.  Remove and dust with cinnamon.
