I have made this before and it is a hit with my kid! It's better than having to buy or borrow a spring form pan and waiting for an hour or so for a cake to bake and then chill. What's best is, you can decorate your own way and have a different cheesecake every time!



I had high hopes for this recipe since the reviews seemed to be so high. The recipe was very easy to put together and cooked in exactly the 20 minutes that the recipe stated. We were not a fan of the texture of this recipe. I was expecting more of a cheescake texture and they were more cakey. It is possible part of this was because of the vanilla wafer crust that baked into the filling.



Cheesecakes don't get much easier than these. I did crush the vanilla wafer. These turned out perfect.
