3. Mix the remaining ingredients in a large bowl until smooth.

This recipe makes enough for 2-4 inch spring form pans.
Triple the recipe for an 8 inch spring form pan and quadruple the recipe for a 10 inch spring form pan.

I realize it wont officially be Autumn for a couple more weeks... August 23rd to be exact, which just happens to be my parent's anniversary. "Happy Anniversary Dad and Mom. I love you two!" Aren't they a good lookin' couple?
