"This is an easy recipe that doesn't take long to fix. My husbands family has me make several of these around the holidays. To start with you need to have a store bought graham cracker pie crust."

  1. Can this be frozen?


  1. I've made the cheesecake twice this week. The first time, I used light cream cheese, sour cream, and Cool Whip, and used sugar free cherry pie filling. Everyone loved it! The second time, I used regular cream cheese, sour cream, & strawberry pie filling, but used lite Cool Whip. Delicious! For both pies, I used graham cracker crumbs, and prepared the crust as directed on the box. The cheesecake was rich and creamy, and the family couldn't get enough of it! Thanks for sharing!
  2. Very Very good. The sour cream made it richer and it was delicious!!
  3. I didn't use a crust and used all fat free ingredients. This turned out pretty soft so I would consider this more of a pudding especially without the crust. It was however VERY VERY good and I will be making this as a "Cheesecake Pudding" for company. Thanks for sharing!
  4. This was simply wonderful. I used an OREO crust and canned Strawberry pie filing. The recipe was very quick and easy - and opens the door to limitless combination possibilities - all of which I plan on trying :)
  5. I found this recipe on the back of a cream cheese package & couldn't believe how easy, fast, cheap & YUMMY it is!!! This is also a great recipe for your little cooks to help with since there is no baking required. Thanks for sharing this with everyone!
