Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe is WONDERFUL! This recipe is WONDERFUL! I cannot say enough good about it. I made it the first time as directed, and we liked it but not as well as with a graham cracker crust. Either way it is wonderful. You can also set this cheesecake in the freezer to set quicker. I highly recommend this recipe!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was great and exactly what I was craving. This was great and exactly what I was craving. However, I thought it needed more lime juice and up the recipe to 1/3c. I believe next time I will even add more cream cheese or less cool whip. Never-the-less my co-employees loved it and I will make it again.

I ate this cheesecake at my mother-in-laws house on Father's Day for the first time and it was a HUGE hit it. It has such a light and fluffy taste to it. I made this cheesecake using fat free cream cheese and it still had such flavor. You have to TRY IT!!!!

I think the cool green color just says spring. I found it easy to make and well worth the effort. My family really enjoyed this great dessert.
