The other day, I took a "break in the action," to grab a cup of coffee, and chat with my neighbor.  She's had both COVID shots, and we're in each other's very small circle of face-to-face friends.

Along with my coffee, she offered me a slice of this home made cheese cake.

It's like a "cheesecake," with lemon, and it's delicious.

It's...GRRRRRREAT!

3/4 C softened butter (1&1/2 sticks)
