Bake at 350 degrees for the recommended time. They forget to mention a temperature both here & on their website, but that's what I used & it came out correctly. I used cinnamon graham crackers for the crust & cut the sugar in the crust in half to accommodate. I also used Plain Oikos because Vanilla had extra sugar in it & I thought it would make it to sweet with an extra cup of sugar added. Not bad for a healthy cheesecake. I would recommend lining the bottom round of the spring-form pan with foil before attaching the collar so that after you refrigerate it you could move it to a serving plate. Also non-flavored dental floss definitely the best tool for cutting cheesecake. I will be making this again soon, mayhap this time with the citrus variation. ^-^

Loved this cake!!! Aaaaawesome! Will make again. Didn't let it cool down and still tasted fantastic. I used fat free plain yogurt. Added cocoa to the yogurt mixture, and chocolate glaze once it was out of the oven.

This was amazing. Helpful tip: in convection oven cook at 325 for 45 minutes. Then turn oven off to cool. Baking it at 350 makes it too brown on top. My whole family loved it served with wip cream and berries. I will pass this recipe on to friends. Thank you!

This is a good recipe except that my crust turned out soggy, I was going to bake my crust first just because the filling ig liquidy and I should have. Next time I will. This is not at all the consistancy of cheese cake. But it is a great alternative, I will also make it sugar free next time.

This was great! I had some non-fat vanilla yogurt I wanted to use up, and this was the perfect recipe for it.

This was fantastic. My husband is perpetually in a battle with his weight due to his build and the frequency with which the Army makes him take PT tests, so any time I find a dessert that lets him 'cheat' on his diet, he is thrilled. This is definitely one of them. Two things of note: I doubled this recipe and it gave me exactly enough filling to put in three of the graham cracker pie crusts you can buy from the store. This helped from both a time perspective a size-control perspective, because the crusts are smaller than a normal pie dish. Secondly, go into this with an open mind. No, the consistency is not identical to that of cheesecake, but is is amazingly close for something that is so much healthier, and I honestly like it better than actual cheesecake because it isn't as rich.
