Dora's Prize Winning Cheesecake

My maternal Grandmother, Dora Feinstein, was an excellent cook and an even better baker! She began entering baking contests and in 1964 she became the New Jersey state winner of the Pillsbury Bake-Off. As the state winner she received all new kitchen appliances and an all-expense paid trip, with my grandfather, to Miami FL to compete in the National Bake-Off! Parts of the contest were televised that year and we got to watch her in the parade of state winners entering the hotel ballroom which had been transformed into a lot of small kitchens! Later we watched the Award Ceremony. While she did not win the National Bake-Off she was OUR winner! We loved visiting my grandparents for many reasons, but one particular reason was that we could be sure we would be “testing” whatever her latest creation was! Her recipe became the property of Pillsbury, of course, and appears in their cookbooks as "Royal Marble Cheesecake".
