SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.—A suburban Phoenix family says their Christmas cheesecake sent them the message of a holiday miracle.

The Arizona Republic reports ( http://bit.ly/K5RNal) that when the family in Scottsdale, Ariz., pulled their dessert out of the oven, it cracked as it cooled and formed a crucifix.

The family members, who have not given their names publicly, say the crucifix is a message.

They say they won't be eating the cheesecake. Instead, they plan on selling it and donating the money to a local charity or church.
