I have never made a cheesecake before so I wasn't sure how this would turn out. I am so happy that I decided to make it. This recipe is easy and the cheesecake was DELICIOUS!!! I will never buy a cheesecake from the store again. The taste and texture was wonderful.

Simple, decadent and breeze to make. To me, this was a dense cheesecake. I loved that it wasn't overly sweet. I topped with a can light cherry pie filling. I think the only thing I'll do different next time, is add a layer of sweetened sour cream. I love the tang it adds to cheesecake. Thanks so much for sharing this flexible keeper of a recipe.

We loved this cheesecake - so very creamy and rich. I topped it with blueberry pie filling instead of cherry and it was just over the top. Will definitely make this again ! Made for Spring PAC 2012.
