Very light and fluffy and easy to make. This has a totally different texture than I am use to in cheesecakes. I think with the cheesecake being so fluffy it lost a little of the cream cheese flavor. I topped it off with no sugar added cherry pie filling. Makes for a nice light dessert. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2014.
