Simple Easy delicious Cheesecake Recipe

Top Review by AmyHasAPlan

This was so much easier than the traditional cheesecake recipe, but just as delicious. I used an electric mixer to whip up the cream cheese and other ingredients until they were very smooth and it almost doubled in volume, so it actually fills TWO store bought pie shells (FYI) so I made one in a chocolate cookie shell for a turtle cheesecake, and used the other half of the batter to fill a graham shell for a regular cheesecake. They were both to die for. Thanks for this great recipe.
