I had a coworker years ago who would make this "cheesecake" for all work functions. I make this myself during summer now it's a light and fluffy dessert that is also delicious frozen. The amount of confectioners sugar in the "cheesecake" part can be cut back by half and not even be missed. I also add a couple tablespoons of lemon juice to the filling for a little tartness.

We used to have this when I was younger I was nostalgic and trying to find a recipe but this one was WAY too sweet. The graham crackers did not need any sugar...a little butter would have been fine enough. I m also not sure the cream cheese needed any extra sugar with the whipped topping mixed in. One hint be sure cream cheese is softened to room temp mix well and then add whipped topping. Read More

It was very good. Loved it. My only problem was trying to figure out how many graham crackers to use. Is that 20 squares or the whole rectangle as it comes in the box. I think my cracker layer is too thick. I used 15 rectangles when it looked like it was going to be too much I quit. Read More

I made this for Easter/Birthday celebrations for my family. I made one recipe gluten free using S'moreables and did an apple pie filling. I also made 9 13 pan with cherry and lemon piefillings. I did alternating stripes and then swirled the two together. This reminded us of the Charms sweet and sour pops from when we were kids. Read More
