Another Cheesecake

Cheesecakeanothercheesecake

This “cheesecake” is easy and tasty.  As you can see from the above recipe from Eliza Smiths 1739 “The Compleat Housewife”, it is basically a 1/3 potato, 1/3 egg and 1/3 butter tart with some sugar and nutmeg added for flavor.

Hints:  Don’t skimp on the nutmeg.  If it tastes too potato-y try baking it a little longer.
