    Easy & Tasty

    David Ramos from COLORADO SPRINGS, CO

    My family enjoy their cheesecakes, especially my dad and sister. If you made cheesecakes before, you know how some recipes can become quite involved. I wondered whether this easy, no bake recipe would win over the cheesecake lovers in my family. Sure enough, it did. The cheesecake was finished the next day.

    Great No-Bake Cheesecake

    Sheila B. from Uniondale, NY

    I made this recipe last week. It came out great as well as tasted the delicious. I shared it with co-workers and they loved it. I used pre-made graham cracker crusts and was able to get two pies from the recipe. I've eaten so much of it that I am giving the rest away just to get it out of my refrigerator. I found each day the pie was in the refrigerator the more it set and taste even better. Great recipe. I will be making this for our annual bbq this year, but will do it in the springform pan to get more pie with each slice. I know it's gonna go really fast!!

    Wonderful

    Barbara Bray from Bowling Green, KY

    I just made these for work tomorrow. But I made them in the individual mini muffin tins with little vanilla wafers instead of graham cracker crust. They are delicious and so easy. My neighbor loves them and I know the people are work will. Definitely a keeper.

    Sometimes the best are really the easiest!

    Dianna Small from SACRAMENTO, CA

    This is one of the easiest cheesecake recipes that I have found, yet extremely elegant. We are truly a family of cheesecake lovers, so finding one that is easy to make is the best. And since we have young children running through the house the fact that you do not have to bake this is very nice, especially since it is now getting very warm here and using the oven during the hot spring and summer months is most uncomfortable. We truly love this cheesecake.

    Elegant & more...

    PAULA VON DER HEIDE from VALDOSTA, GA

    May I suggest the use of Nestle's white chips in place of the chocolate? (And a tsp of grated lemon peel and just a hint of pastel yellow, or maraschino cherry & pastel pink) to make it Easterseasonal

    Mendy Vinson from MEXICO, MO

    My mom made this for us this past weekend and it was AWESOME!! It tasted fabulous and it was so easy to make. I think that a great substitution for this would be to use white chocolate and then top it with Raspberry preserves.

    Try it as a soufflé.......

    Sonia Martinez from HONOMU, HI

    Instead of using a crust, I poured the cheesecake filling in a prepared ramekin to which I had previously taped a parchment collar to hold up the sides..... After it was set, I carefully removed the collar and the "soufflé" looked beautiful above the rim of the ramekin dish.
