This cheesecake is great. Since my family is allergic to dairy I made it with goat cheese.I made it twice, once using all goat milk cream cheese and non dairy whipped topping,cheesecake was to heavy. I then made it using half cream cheese and half ricotta along with the non dairy whipped topping,cheesecake turned out light and fluffy. Thank You for a great dessert.Nany
