Very good and very easy. I made this for church leadership meeting. I had put the canned fruit with it but they were better without it. note: I tried to shortcut by mixing all the last parts of the recipe at one time. Do not do this. I could not get them to blend well.

This was excellent, Bev. I actually preferred this to cheesecake and it was easier to make. I had all ingredients on hand. I also liked that they weren't overly sweet. I added some lemon zest to the cream cheese mixture, since i absolutely love anything lemon. Next time, I may add a layer of raspberry preserves to change it up a bit! Thanks for posting!

It's taking all of my strength not to explode right now, I just ate the easiest, most delicious rendition of cheesecake I have ever put past my lips. I made a few changes, I doubled the batch, made it in a larger pan and skipped the topping. I sprinkled about 3/4 of a bag of semisweet chocolate chips on the top 5 minutes after I took them out of the oven and let them melt, then spread the chocolate evenly over the cheesecake. I wish I could eat these every day (several times a day). I thank you from the bottom of my heart (and so do my research lab fellows, my friends, and especially my daughter). Oh, and by the way, I made this with 1/2 neufchatel cheese and it turned out perfect. I'm going to go get another one!

YUM! Even my mom (who hates cheesecake) enjoyed these! Super easy to make. A bit thin, but the middle layer could easily be doubled. Dad and son and myself really liked. Thanks Bev:)

Great recipe. Quick, easy, and fairly foolproof. Having the topping means that you don't have to worry about cracking on the top. One of my guests thought the topping gave it a slightly toffee-like effect. I liked how the bottom was very firm and robust. I added cinnamon to the crust/topping mixture for a bit of extra oomph. The filling came out with a perfect texture and flavor. This is definitely a great shortcut to cheesecake.

Great, easy way to get my cheesecake 'fix.' I made it with a layer of raspberry jam between crust and filling. Wonderful! Will be making again and again! Thanks!

Easy and yummy! I spread huckleberry jam on top of the cooled crust as others had suggested and will do it next time as well. Also, I stored the cut bars in the freezer, we loved these as a frozen treat. Thanks for posting!

AMAZING! I made the following alerations: Added 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut, 1/4 finely chopped walnuts, and 1 tsp special dark cocoa powder to the crust/topping mix. Added 1/4 coarsely chopped special dark chocolate chips to the baked crust before pouring cheesecake mix into crust.

Very good, and very easy. I agree that only 1/2 a cup of the crust is needed on the top. We put blueberries on for the 2nd serving and it was very good! Make sure you have enough milk because these make you thirsty!
