This cheesecake is a little different. It uses instant lemon pudding mix. I think different flavors of pudding mix could be substituted. Let me know if you do.

It was easy to make, a little on the expensive side . I baked for 1 1/4 hours at 325, worked okay. Creamy nice tasting, but as the recipe states Lemon Pudding Cheesecake, and that is what it tasted like lemon pudding, so all said and done, I prefer many other cakes to this one, to serve as a cheesecake.

Made this for our family gathering Sunday evening. Wonderful, creamy, and sweet & delicately tart at the same time. I scraped off the strawberry cool whip on my own piece, but the others enjoyed it with it. Tasted like New York style lemon cheesecake. I could have sworn the crust had blendarized pecans in it, had I not made it myself and had known I didn't put any nuts in the crust. I like this crust much better than graham cracker ones. It did take about 1&1/2 hrs to cook, but maybe my oven is cooler than barbacious'.

I used pistachio pudding mix and it was pretty good. also I didn't cook it for the whole hour and 15 minutes, only about 50 to 55 minutes. Maybe my oven is hotter.
