This is a rich cheesecake with a pineapple sour cream topping. It is made in a 2 qt. oblong baking pan (about 7"x11"). I have even made it in a 9"x13" If using as part of a dessert tray they can be cut in small squares and served in muffin pan liners

This was great and wicked easy to make. I had been reading other recipes and I saw one that called for a crust made out of coconut cookies, so I bought a cheap brand of macaroons, crushed them and used them for the crust. It was absolutely delicious. Next time I make it I will do the same although I am thinking of adding some toasted coconut to the top as well.

This is heaven, for sure! What a great cheese cake. Light and refreshing. The graham cracker crust is perfect for this. This is a keeper and I can't wait to make it again. Thanks for sharing, MA in Florida.
