"I loved the lemon and the simplicity of this recipe. I used frozen blueberries and they worked fine, however, fresh would be better. Should be fantastic with fresh strawberries next season!! Thanks again Dorothy."
"This was fantastic. My kids loved it!"
"I really like this cheesecake. It's very creamy and smooth. The lemon taste is fantastic! I made it with blackberries and fat free cream cheese and it was very tasty. I think this is very good and versatile recipe. You can choose whatever kind of berries you want and I think it'd also be good without the lemon and just the berries. I really enjoyed this cheesecake!"
"I omitted the berries because they were so pricey, but the pie still turned out wonderfully. It has a delicate yet tangy flavor that satisfied both my lemon-loving palette and my bf's more subtle tastebuds. And it was SOOO easy to make!"
"Lovely recipe. Used raspberries, strawberries and blueberries, and added another 8oz cream cheese, to help set quicker. Also added chocolate ganche drizzle for a little contrast on plating. Big hit."
"Wow! What a simply quick way to make a cheesecake-like desert! I used 1/2 lemon and 1/2 lime juice and pureed blackberries, but had to add sugar as they were extremely tart. Wonderful dish! Thank you!"
"I just LOVE this pie; and the variations that can be made with the recipe. I was serving to some 'non-fruit' people, so I made with out swirling the berries through the filling. I did serve with blackberries on top, to those who like fruit...and the blackberries were a nice foil for the juicy lemon flavor of the pie! I'll certainly be making this again! And next time, I'll swirl the fruit - Thanks for sharing, Derf! Made for Fall PAC '09."
"This was definitely a hit - and soooo easy. I actually used cherry pie filling instead of berries, delicious!!!"
"I made this for Father's Day barbeque, everyone enjoyed it, my husband especially. I used canned blueberry's because I had no fresh. I'm sure it's even better with fresh;"
"A new family favorite: simple, creamy, & delicious! I didn't do the swirl cuz I was being lazy, just threw fresh blueberries on the table for those that wished. So good! Thanks"
"Very good, quick dessert. I used a dark chocolate Oreo pre-made crust. I served it with some strawberries (birdseye frozen strawberries in syrup). Everyone loved it! Thanks Derf!"
"Nice, easy pie. Made this for Thanksgiving, using a store-bought pie crust, and it was done in 5 minutes (well, not counting the chilling time). Tasted great, and was gone before the night was up- can't ask for much more than that!"
"Light and refreshing says it all. I made this pie with no berries (didn't even use as garnish) and the pie came lovely. My DH didn't love it (said was too tart) but I did/do and took to work -- everyone enjoyed it!"
"Delicious, light, refreshing - and SIMPLE! Need I say more?"
"Great flavor! I used a bag of frozen mixed berries and they were perfect. I also used an oreo cookie crust instead of graham cracker and loved it! It DEFINITELY needs longer than 3-4 hours in the fridge. Even after several more hours in the fridge it wasn't a very firm pie. Actually really good frozen :)"
"Awesome! I made this for Easter along with a chocolate cream pie. DH is a serious chocoholic and he actually liked this one best."
"Oh WOW! So delicious!!! I made this as a treat for my parents recently. They loved it! I used mixed berries for the fruit -- blueberries, blackberrys and raspberrys. Just great! Thank you Derf! Made for Summer Comfort Cafe"
"Wow, what an excellent flavor and not to sweet. It is a wonderful taste."
