Reviews for Blueberry Swirl Cheesecake
"I forgot to purchase the blueberry pie filling, but I had strawberry pie filling on hand so I used it. My husband enjoyed this dessert."
"If you love cheesecake but hate the time it takes, try this recipe it is truly awesome and easy."
"I got this recipe from Quick Cooking years ago. It has become a family favorite. I have used a variety of pie fillings. Delicious!"
"It was very simpleto make and you can also use cherry, straberry, or your own favroite pie filling. I used more blueberry filling like 1 cup insted of a half and I think that it doesn't need anymore filling on top. Then it is easier to serve if you don't have it on top too."
"This recipe was very easy to assemble and was very tasty! Instead of the blueberry pie filling I used fresh blackberries (as that's what I happened to have on hand). They tasted excellent. The swirl pattern on top of the completed cheesecake was also very attractive and made it enticing for people to eat."
"My first cheesecake! It was very simple and fun to make and my family loves it. I will definetly make it again. I did, however, substitute the cream cheese for neufchatel cheese to make it healthier."
"Quick and Easy! I added a 1/2 tsp of lemon juice to the recipe tho! Delish!! :)"
"something so simple, yet so delicious"
"I made this for the first time this past weekend for my husband's birthday party. It was fast, easy and delicious. Will definitely make it again."
"Made it with Neuftachel cheese & Strawberry Pie filling. It turned out good. It's not too sweet...just perfect."
"My family loves this easy cheesecake recipe. I often substitute one package of the cream cheese with low fat or neufchatel cheese & get with excellent results."
"Can i use light or fat free cream cheese"
