   *  Ultimate cheesecake -- This recipe is the original
   creation of a co-worker, Don Chaney. I consider myself
   a cheesecake gourmet, and I rate this recipe as 8.5
   out of 10 (However, there are no 10s). The recipe is
   so simple, I almost feel guilty serving it.
   *  Variations: Crush some walnuts into the crust.
   Pour a can of cherry or blueberry pie filling over the
   chilled cake, then chill again.  Put about 2-3 T of
   your favorite liqueur into the cake filling.
