Texas Cheesecake Sheet Cake

My dear friend Lisa made this one day and brought it to work to share. I BEGGED and pleaded her for the recipe because it was so yummy and delish! I was shocked at just how simple it is when she emailed it to me. She got it somewhere on the web- she thought it was cdkitchen. Hope you enjoy it!

    made this for a dinner party last night and thought it was GREAT. I took toppings with me--cherry pie filling and carmel sauce--so people could choose their own. I think I could have baked it just a bit longer--more like an hour. But that could just be my oven! In any case, THANKS, I'll definitely make it again and try some variations!

    Delicious! I love the crust on this and it is so easy to make. I had to bake mine about an hour for the middle to set up. I used fat free cream cheese and skim milk and it is wonderful!! Thanks for the recipe!

    This is such a great dessert! Took it to a pot luck and one guy ate SEVERAL helpings and asked for the recipe along with a few others. My son said it was the best cheesecake I have ever made and definitely wants it again. Thanks so much for an easy, great recipe.

    I made this for Easter this year. I did do a few changes to lighten it up though. I only did egg whites instead of whole eggs and I switched out the oil for unsweetened apple sauce. Also, I used reduced far cream cheese. It still turned out wonderful and everyone loved it! Thanks for sharing!
