This definitely tastes like cheesecake! Changes I made: Used 16 oz. Philadelphia Cheesecake Filling instead of regular cream cheese. Used 3 t. lemon juice instead of 4. This is not an extremely sweet ice cream, but I don't believe it would have been sweet enough had I not used the Philly Cheesecake filling instead of the cream cheese. The flavor is mildly peachy, with the tang of cheesecake. I do recommend allowing this ice cream to ripen in the freezer overnight as the flavor improved a great deal once it was completely frozen.
