When I first made this I was very bias, thinking it was just okay. I still think the recipe above all was very easy, very nice, light but fluffy thick. Not thick as in dense heavy. The thickness of the cream cheese mixture hold very well and doesn't fall flat. This recipe reminds me of the instant no bake Jell-O brand cheesecake pie. Over all, very good. I had to re-rate this because I was a little bias at 1st to the box...then came back after a day or so and re-evaluated my previous review. While the flavor came through with the cream cheese. It is light in flavor, it needed that over the top pa-zazz. Where the box has more of a malted milk cheesecake flavor and the graham cracker crust in the box is very sweet and wet. This is lighter, with fresher ingredients and the crust is nice and dry. This a winner as far as the easiness to assemble and only having just 4 ingredients to work with. However, in the box brand, I don't have to have or want extra toppings because it's way sweeter and much more dense.....this one screams "top me with flavors" which is what I did. I made fresh blueberry and strawberry sauces. So, after thinking very clearly and honestly and seeing my family's reaction to this cheesecake topped with berry sauces. I choose this one verses the box. The berry sauces totally won me over with making this recipe again and again.
