Kuchen

Cathy, e-mail message to Michael Miller.


I remember my grandmother making this dessert but when I make it, it does not turn out like grandma's did. I thought maybe someone on this list could help me with the recipe. Maybe I transposed something when I copied the recipe. Maybe others know this recipe by another name? It is like a cinnamon custard/cheese cake pie (for lack of a better description). It is hard to describe how it tastes but it is delicious!

Thanks for the help!
