Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! Wonderful! To cut fat/calories, I used the neufchatel (sp?) and Fat Free cream cheeses, and the Cool Whip Light. The vanilla wafer crust was quite tasty and a nice change from graham cracker crusts. Used an 8" springform (was what I had on hand), baked additional 30 minutes longer and the cheesecake was much higher, of course, but turned out just fine. The topping didn't firm up -- I'll just mix in a bit of unflavored gelatin next time. Maybe it was because I used the lower fat cream cheeses ...? Anyway, I encourage you to give this recipe a try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was so easy to make with so few ingredients. This was so easy to make with so few ingredients. I loved the change of Nilla wafers for the crust. The cheesecake turned out so smooth and light. I'd like to try some of the suggested low calorie/sugar/fat substitutes next time. This will be my new go-to cheesecake recipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FABULOUS! FABULOUS!!! I have made this recipe several times and everone just loves it!!! The only thing I change is because my boys like to have the whole neighborhood over..haha I make them as individual cupcakes and top with a cherry pie filling. If you make them as cupcakes you just need to reduce the time down to about 35 minutes and keep checking it. Always a favorite and easy to make. If making cupcake version be sure to not fill over halfway or you wont hav room for the topping :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this recipe a couple days ago. I made this recipe a couple days ago. It is excellent except I don't think that I made the topping right. I would like to know how to whisk the Cool Whip into the cream cheese mixture so it is light and high like the picture. Mine turned out sort of like frosting and looked smashed like a pancake although it tasted good! Any help please? I kind of folded the Cool Whip into the cream cheese mixture.

My husband couldn't believe I made it! I also gave some to my parents, and my mom actually said it was just as good, if not better than hers, which is a huge compliment because she makes an awesome cheesecake. I will definitely make this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cheesecake is wonderful! This cheesecake is wonderful! To help my husband keep his blood sugar under control, I made the following adjustments; instead of vanilla wafers I used 1.5C of almond flour, replaced the sugar with splenda, and made my own whipped topping by using splenda with heavy whipping cream. This cheesecake was a hit with all that tried it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was so, so good! This was so, so good! The cheesecake is creamy and lightly sweet, and the mousse topping is both delicious and a great way to cover up cracks in the cheesecake, although mine only had one small one. Very impressive when you cut into it too. This would be a great holiday or special celebration dessert.
