Great Pie! It was very simple to make. I did not have any cream in the house so I subsituted cool whip and it turned out great!!!! It set really well and I would consider it a "light" version of a cheesecake. I think next time I will add fruit on top and add a tsp. of vanilla into the mixture. But it was great w/o any of the added items I just mentioned too!!!


One of the easiest cheesecake recipes I've tried! Light and not too sweet, would make it again for sure! But if you're looking for the texture of traditional Japanese cheesecake, this isn't the one.


I have been to Japan but never had the chance to try Japanese cheesecake, however this recipe is really good.I needed to use up half of a bag of marshmallows, so this was a perfect recipe. I had a hard time with adding a raw egg yolk in to the cream cheese mixture so after the marshmallow and milk were smooth I added two spoons of the hot marshmallow/milk mix to a small bowl with the egg yolk. After mixing well I poured into back into the pot, and cooked for another minute while stirring. Then I added it to the cream cheese mix, then added a splash of vanilla extract. I really had doubts that this pie would set up, but after 3 hours it was set. I would recommend chilling for longer though for better flavor. I topped this pie with Supreme Strawberry Topping from this site, but might try added green tea powder to the batter next time for a more Japanese flair. This is a great no-bake cheesecake that is light and not too sweet, can't wait to make again!
