Sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon (I mix up this amount of sugar and cinnamon but usually only use about half of the mixture; I store the other half in an airtight container and use the next time or for cinnamon toast!).

Bake 30 minutes in preheated 350 degree oven. This cheese cake is good warm, but even better after cooling and then refrigerating overnight.
