    This recipe was easy and delicious. My son made it for his first time making cheesecake. This was the only dessert at Thanksgiving dinner that was gone before the evening was over. We didn't use the cherry topping. It was still great plain. - 12/8/07

    Soooooooo good! I made a chocolate version (stirred in hershey's special dark cocoa powder, and used a premade oreo crust). Also, I reduced calories by using fat free cream cheese and splenda. Still not low-cal, but soooo heavenly, for when you need a real treat!!!! - 10/18/07

  • This was probably the best cheesecake I've ever had that wasn't super sweet. It was also the first one I've made myself. I couldn't give 5 stars because I didn't use the topping, and I added 1/2 tsp lemon juice and an extra 1/2 tsp vanilla (with another 1/2 tbs flour). Overall, tasted GREAT! Thanks - 8/20/11

  • I substituted egg whites for whole eggs and 8 oz whipped cream for one of the packages of neufchatel cheese. I also didn't use topping. Fairly tasty... - 7/28/10

  • My 14 year old daughter made this for our New Year's eve party and it turned out wonderful. I will have to remember next time to add a pan with water under the cake pan to keep it from cracking - but it was delicious! She said "Mom if this is so easy to make why don't we make it all the time" LOL - 1/4/10
