Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite go to desserts. I have been making this for several years. It is really light and refreshing. You can add so many different things into the base to give it many different tastes. Crush some cookies into it and sprinkle some on top is a really fast and easy alternative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this recipe. I love this recipe. It's easy to jazz it up too. For example, during this time of year you can usually find the General Foods International Coffees Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice. If you add 1/3 cup of that after mixing the cream cheese and sugar and use the French Vanilla Cool Whip, it makes a great Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'WOW' and 'YUMMY' This is a cheesecake that after you make it you'll never return to baking one. 'WOW' and 'YUMMY' This is a cheesecake that after you make it you'll never return to baking one. This is easy and very good. I has 2 toppins the strawberries and the cherry pie filling. But some of my guest prefer the cake without anything. I would recommend this to all who likes cheesecakes. Thank you Kraft for thinking about us cooks that don't like to bake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was dilicious everyone in my family had some, and were upset when I said I couldn't make... It was dilicious everyone in my family had some, and were upset when I said I couldn't make anymore!! The only difference is that I added a layer of whipped cream mixed with sugar and some straberrys between the two layers! It was awsome, and I also realized that the longer I kept it in the fridge the better it got. So I suggest making it 24-48 hours before your get together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE EYES HAVE IT! I've been making this pie for over 50 years. Whenever I am asked to bring a dessert I always make a cherry, blueberry and pineapple cream cheese pie. Every time the pies are always the first to be eaten and finished. I always make sure I have at least 10 recipe cards made in advance because the recipe is always requested. The colorful pies hit the eyes first, the taste buds second. I love to watch the faces of people who are eating it for the first time, they always make me chuckle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I make this recipe at Thanksgiving, Easter, Christmas, Amy potluck at church...pretty much all the time. We've been enjoying it since the 90's when I first found the recipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a very GOOD cheesecake. This was a very GOOD cheesecake. In fact, my husband doesn't really like cheesecakes but when I told him to try this, he loved it and actually ate more than a slice [to me, that was good considering the above just mentioned]. I even invited my brother over for company and I offered him a slice and he kept on saying "this is soooo good, man, this is good". We just love this recipe!! Keep up the good work, Kraft!!!
