Cheesecake with Chocolate Ganache Recipe

Monday, December 7, 2020

Our family like cheesecake but not the thick one just the thin one made with one 8 ounce cream cheese instead of three. My friend gave us this one day and I ended up eating most of them. I have been making it almost every week since then.
