I have made this several times. The family loves it. I do cut back on the lemon juice though. I only add 1/3 cup instead of 1/2. Other than that, simply sinful.
After reading the reviews I decided to add more cream cheese lessen the lemon juice and just added heavy cream to the cream cheese batter. skipped the strawberries, cooked the strawberries and made strawberry whipped cream instead. So I had a cream cheese layer topped with s strawberry whipped cream layer. FANTASTIC!!
Recipe is good, yet maybe too sweet for some tastes. Everyone here gobbled it up. Next time I'll try adding a little more cream cheese and a little less lemon juice to thicken it up and ease on the acid side. If you've got a sweet tooth, you'll love it.
I took the advice of a previous reviewer and only added 1/3 cup of lemon juice. It was delicious! It is important to let the pie set for at least 2 hours before serving it - that allows the creamy layer to set up.
With a few changes, this recipe is 5+! I used a deep dish graham cracker crust. Knocked lemon juice back to 1/4 cup. Used TWO cream cheese packages (total of 16 oz). Increased vanilla to 1 TABLESPOON. Refrigerated overnight. Not the least bit runny, set up great, great flavor, cheap and easy to make, perfect for a hot summer day! And, as if it wasn't already rich enough...I served it with Peach Crisp on top of it! Any berry or fruit topping would be delicious; I will admit it's all I can do not to stick my finger in it every time I open the frig! Thanks Kimberly!
the consistency is too thin and the amount of lemon juice seemed to be too much. if i ever make again i will not put in as much lemon juice. a little extra cream cheese might help as well. i used blueberries on top instead of strawberries. i do feel this recipe has potential but, my husband was not fond of it at all.
Way too sweet. I made for a dinner party and rushed to throw together an alternate dessert after sampling.
Taste good, but the consistancy was way too thin...I added another package of cream cheese and this seemed to help. Good flavor...atleast a good base recipe to make something quick. Thought another way to make it better would be to fold in a container of whipped cream instead of adding another pkg of cream cheese.
