"This is a simple version of cheesecake, using a store bought graham cracker crust. You can dress it up if you wish, by topping it with a little fruit or pie filling."

"Made it with mashed Strawberries and White chocolate shavings.It was delicious.A great basic Cheese Pie recipe."
"I enjoyed this recipe. The first time it came out a little too sweet for my husband, but the kids loved it. The second time I added 2 teaspoons of lemon juice and it turned out perfect, you could taste the lemon, but it wasn't too overwhelming."
"This recipe is so close to the one I lost.. so am going to give it a try.. the one I lost was from a package of low fat cream cheese from Publix grocery store.. thanks for posting this.. I have been looking for awhile to find one even close to the one I had.."
"I liked the simplicity of this recipe. I used low-fat cream cheese and light sour cream. I also used 1/4 cup Splenda instead of the sugar. The crust was a chocolate store-bought one. I also melted 1/4 cup of semi-sweet choc chips, added about 1/2 cup of the cream cheese mixture to it and stirred. I then poured the vanilla mixture in the crust, topped it with the chocolate mixture and baked. My only complaint is that the filling was a bit sour. I think it needs more sugar/splenda."
"I love cheesecake but usually make a chocolate or fruit based cheesecake. Your cake was a nice change for us! It is light and very tasty. I used low-fat cream cheese and low-fat sour cream and made the crust with recipe #96877. I also used lemon extract instead of vanilla and it came out great! Thanks Recipe Reader for making me rediscover the taste of a basic cream cheese pie!!"
