 It is my understanding in 1969 that the cheesecake sold at B. Altman's for take-out 
was made by a lady somewhere up in Washington Heights.  One had to order it by about 
4:00 p.m. Wednesday in order for it to be available on Friday after 1:00 p.m. I used 
to buy it to take home to Minneapolis Friday nights. 
Would love to have her recipe - results were wonderful!


Hi Al,

Sorry, after another attempt today, I am still unable to find the cheesecake recipe or any recipes at all from B Altman's. I did not find any mention of their cheesecake being made by someone outside their bakery. I'll post this for reader input.
