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

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.

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.
