I gave this 5 stars because after I tweeked it a bit it's an awesome recipe. I add 1/2 c. sugar (or to taste) and I add milk instead of the brandy because we don't drink. I also don't mix up the whip topping. I add it to the cream cheese while it's still powder. Then I add milk until it's pudding consistancy. It sets up more while it's in the fridge. It's YUMMY!!

I thought that this recipe came out way too sour. Perhaps it needs some sugar added. I really don’t know what would make it better. I put fresh fruit on top of this cheesecake. Maybe it would taste better with that sugary cherry pie filling on top. The recipe was easy to do.

I added 1/2 cup of sugar to the filling as other reviewers suggested. It sure was necessary, it came out just right in sweetness. However, the taste overall was a bit like package cheese cake, nobody was impressed.

Simple to make! Followed advice of previous reviewer & combined powdered topping with milk and cream cheese. Topped with canned blueberries and turned out really pretty good...and this is coming from a person who hates cheesecake!

i followed other reviews and added some sugar to the batter and i left the whipped topping in its powder stage when i mixed it with the cream cheese. I also added a tad bit of reall vanilla to give it just an extra bit of flavor. i just now stuck it in the fridge and i can not wait to eat!
