very easy and tasty. I added some lemon juice and put only half of the white sugar and it was great!

I tried this recipe and it did not turn out good at all. It did not set like a cheesecake should and it tasted like Dream Whip with a lot of added sugar.

This cheesecake was great, easy to make and great taste. It tasted even better after a couple days. I used a 9x13 pan and we got more servings. I put canned cherry filling on it.

This is a great and easy recipe and quick to make.Made it for my family and they just loved it.

I added crushed candy canes to this recipe to make it more festive for Christmas, everyone at work loved it!

Turned out pretty well - next time I think I'll add cardamom into the crust just because I like to have a little more flavoring.

Mom made this for us when we were little put we used icing sugar and only 1 package of whipped topping:)
