Best Recipes: Rum Raisin Cheesecake

For those who visit my site looking for specific information on organic wheat, grains and oats, I'm deviating slightly from the norm so please forgive me. When I saw this recipe, I had to include it.

I certainly suggest that you use flour that you ground from your grain mill, and of course, organic oats.

If you like rum raisin ice cream, youll enjoy the flavor of rum raisin in this unique cheesecake.
