Thank you! That sounds really rich... all that cream cheese and the eggs. Oh my! We'll have to try it, though. Might have to forgo the syrup.

Oh my...boy is this cheesecake yummy. Aunt Kathy made it and wants to know how much cinnamon goes in it. You didn't post how much so she just guessed and it turned out pretty good.
