I can't believe this pie dosen't have more reviews! This was so delicious and really pretty easy to make. I made as directed and baked in my oven for 40 minutes. I tried it before it cooled down completely and it was so good...can't wait to try once it is cooled in the fridge! Thanks for posting!

Absolute winner! This pie takes little effort, but it's so worth it! I made some adjustments, just a personal preference of ours. I only used 1/2 can of sweetened condensed milk, because I experimented with this type of cheesecake before and found it to be the right consistency and sweetness for us, and we do like sweet. Also, I used little less butter for the crumb topping, to have it more crunchy. For the cranberry sauce I used recipe Brown Sugar Cranberry Sauce and it worked really nicely. For the crust I used recipe Cookie Pie Crust, wonderful! Result was really super yummy. Many thanks for great recipes!
