I give it 5 stars because it is easy AND delicious! I used a little lime and lemon juice. I topped it w/fresh raspberries and dipped some raspberries in white chocolate for decoration. I used the leftover white chocolate for drizzle over the top. I did read the other revies and used 12 ounces of cream cheese so it wasn't too sweet. I also noticed one person mentioned it didn't set. There is a trick. You have to whip it really well. Also, really cool things happen when you add lemon/lime juice to sweetened condensed milk. It helps it gel up and set.

good recipe very easy but just one package of 8oz cream cheese did not work. Instead i had to start all over again and use a total of 2 1/2 8oz packages of cream cheese. The end result was satisfying.

Easy, double the cream cheese and have it at room temperature. This cuts down on the over powering sugar. I topped with blackberries. Family winner. Easy on the cook too. <g>

Very simple recipe! I used 16 oz. of cream cheese instead of 8 oz. and topped with fresh blueberries instead of pie filling. Wonderful dessert!

This recipe is so very easy. The thing that took me the longest was waiting for the cream cheese to soften and allowing my homemade frozen pie filling defrost. After that, this recipe took 10 minutes, top, to put together. Obviously, it still had to chill but I don't mind recipes where you make it then let it sit--it helps me with my time management to make things ahead anyway. I followed some reviewer's suggestions to double the cream cheese, which worked well enough. Until I went to fill my pie crust. 16 oz is a LOT, and I couldn't put it all in the pie crust--as it was, I ended up using most of it but skimping on the pie filling since I'd already put the cream cheese in. I was using a store bought pie crust, but be prepared for leftover cream cheese mixture if you double it and have a small pie pan. It didn't faze me for long, though: I made little cheesecake trifles with the rest of the mixture, some of the pie filling, blueberries, and topped with a cherry. It was very pretty and very good. I had absolutely no issues with this setting--it was definitely firm after less than 2 hours. I did make sure to mix the cream cheese and condensed milk very well, then mixed very well again after adding the lemon juice. This made bf very happy--he loves cheesecake. Thanks for the recipe!

This is the essential in-a-hurry-pie recipe. The cherry topping can be substituted with whatever you have on hand. Foolproof, every time.

This was very good and very easy pie to make. My kids loved it and they are very picky eaters! Wasn't too sweet for us, just right.
