This was very easy to make. I was hesitant on using so much lemon juice (I don't like lemon flavor). However you really can't taste the lemon. I really liked this pie and so did my kids. My husband said it was too creamy. He likes traditional cheese cake. He said it was good though. I will definately keep this recipe on hand for that last minute dessert. I only refrigerated the pie an hour and it was set just fine. The only thing I would do different next time is make my own crust. I like easy recipes and because of the ease and flavor of this one I give it 5 stars. Read More

I was not a fan of the consistency of the filling. I think I wanted it to be more like cheesecake but it came out similar to pudding. Not sure if that was supposed to happen or if I did something wrong but I don't plan on repeating this recipe. Read More

it's good but even BETTER if you whip some heavy cream and FOLD it into the mix. it becomes much fluffier and feels ironically lighter Read More

This was a really tasty pie! I love lemon so I added about 1 Tbsp more lemon juice to get a bit more flavor. The only complaint I have is that the vanilla made the filling a turn brownish color. Next time I will use less. Thanks for the quick and tasty recipe! Read More

I've used this recipe for years and everyone loves it! I usually add pie filling on top (cherry blueberry or strawberry). I sometimes use lime juice in place of lemon juice for a little different twist. Read More

This was very good and simple to make. I had to make my own sweetened condesed milk since I was out of it but it still worked well. I served this with cherry pie filling on top and it was delicious. Read More

This was so simple and so delicious. I love no bake desserts. Made this for Christmas and I am making it once more as a request for my husbands birthday. I liked the idea of folding in some whipped cream. Also I covered the top in some white chocolate shavings and little christmassy sprinkles.Looked so snowy and pretty. Needless to say there were no leftovers. But works as a spring dessert as well. Leave off the chocolate and sprinkles and simply place a few curly strips of lemon rind on top. Read More

I made this again this weekend for a potluck and I found it way too strong of vanilla. I think it was because I used supermarket vanilla and not my usual "good' vanilla. So I will cut back to a tsp or omit if I don't have the good stuff. It still got eaten no leftovers so maybe it was just me.... I've made this many times since I first got the recipe. I love it as a quick & easy dessert. I don't pretend it's cheesecake. It's cheesecake pie. I do add an extra 3 oz pkg of cream cheese to the mix and a bit more lemon juice. I sometimes get a premium (lots more stuff) cherry or blueberry pie filling and top it with that. It's an easy go to recipe.Update: made this again for xmas and for some unknown reason it did not set up. stayed slightly runny which wasn't very appealing tho it still tasted good. Lowfat cream cheese? too much lemon juice? any ideas what went wrong? Read More
