This recipe was quick and easy to make, unfortunately it isn't worth even the few minutes it takes to make. Before I go any furhter: I followed the recipe EXACTLY. The walnut crust is way too thick, and just tastes dry and crunchy, not flavorful. The "cheescake" filling is anything but, it's more like a suggestion of what cheesecake could taste like. Lemon? How can you taste a hint of lemon flavoring when the whole thing tastes like nuts? This recipe was baked by me and tested by my husband and a friend. They both hated it, but not as much as me. I wasted my evening baking time cleaning dishes, including the one left after I threw these things away. Sorry, they just suck.

layer or crust way too thick and not enough cream cheese. TO ALL BAKERS OF THIS RECIPE: Use at least one package of cream cheese to even out the crust, or stick to original 2 packs if you like more cheesecake then crust. Awful recipe despite that.

Like other users, I had to make a number of changes to make this recipe something we would enjoy. I increased the amount of cream cheese to a full 8 oz. package, and I was still wishing there had been more filling. I also added cinnamon to the crust/topping, and used pecans instead of walnuts. We ate them, but I'm sure that there is a better recipe out there. Sorry. :-(
