This recipe is Great!if you don't have enough time to whip something up this was so fast and so inexpensive to make. the only thing I did different was I used a regular size cool whip and I put it in a graham cracker crust pie shell. so good so good! I say give it a try. I made 3 of them and I didn't have any left. Read More

1/2 sugar per 8 oz cream cheese works better with this recipe, also blending the sugar into the cream cheese with a hand mixture until the cream cheese is smooth will give it a creamier texture. Also I had pudding cups so I mixed 2 chocolate pudding cups in, then grated a bit of chocolate candy bar over the top as a garnish. Best way to make it seems to be using cupcake holders in a cupcake pan, put layer of fruit filling in, add this cream cheesecake until 3/4 full, top with oatmeal cookie, freeze. Take out, remove cupcake wrapper, place on plate with fruit side up and let thaw for individual cheesecakes. My husband has informed me the best way to eat this is rolled up in a pancake topped with fruit for his version of a blintz. Read More

I really liked this pie. I used a store-bought graham cracker crust. I also added one teaspoon of amaretto liqueur.: ) Nice flavor. Topped with cherries it looked visually appealing. It didn't quite have the texture of regular cheesecake. Wonder if the cream cheese needs to be increased? At any rate it's quick and convenient - which works for me being a full time working woman. I took it to a potluck last night and it was all gone. Read More

This was pretty good. Definitely not the best cheesecake I've ever had by any means but the quickness made up for it. I didn't make the crust as I used a pre-made one. Read More

Good flavor although it doesn't have the texture of cheesecake at all. I've made this many times using a premade graham cracker crust. Try adding chocolate chips caramel or any other toppings to make it different variations of cheesecake. Read More

I have made this recipe using a graham cracker crust and adding 1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar and also adding either lemon juice or lime juice. If I use a lemon or lime I use the whole lemon/lime. If I don't have a lemon I use a capful of lemon juice. My mother likes it plain without fruit on top. If we have company then I add some cherry pie filling to the cut piece of pie. If I use the lime I don't use any fruit with it. Sometimes I will sprinkle some colored sprinkles on top of the pie to decorate it. Dont expect a New York style cheesecake but do expect a quick easy good dessert every time. Read More

I loved this pie filling with a few variations. I added a 16 oz. carton of whipped topping and 1 cup of powdered sugar to the mixture. I used 2 6 oz graham cracker crusts and a can of blueberry pie filling on top. Yum yum! Read More
