Reviews for Cherry Cheesecake
"This is so easy and delicious.Love it !!! It will be my go to desert."
"Delicious and extremely easy!"
"Easy, Easy and delicious!!!! Everyone loved it!!!"
"This is a delicious recipe. Super easy and so good. My husband, who is not a lover of cherries, declared it a winner and to prepare it again. The only thing I would suggest is to give it plenty of time in the fridge after making it. Next time, I will make it in the afternoon and let it sit overnight. The filling firms up nicely that way. We will definitely have this again. Here is a link to my review and photos.http://community.tasteofhome.com/community_forums/f/29/p/895235/7758534.aspx#7758534"
"Absolutely amazing! I have finally found a fabulous no bake cheese cake that I have been searching for for a very long time. This recipe is super easy and quick which is also a definite plus."
"This was amazing. It has replaced the no bake cheesecake I used to make. 8 oz is about a cup for us Canadians lol."
"Didn't taste like real cheesecake. It was ok."
"So easy and so good! I used blueberry with graham cracker crust. -Lori in WI."
"This is my favorite cheesecake. I don't care for the baked cheesecakes most times they are dry. This is simple and quick to make. Doesn't last in our house !!"
"Simple and delicious! I have made this twice and have received raves about it! The second time I made this, I tweeked it a little by adding 1/2 tsp almond extract and boy did that really increase the flavor!"
"This recipe is, by far, easier and better than another recipe I used that called for sweetened condensed milk rather than whipped topping and confectioners' sugar. I never knew if it would set up; this one is always a winner!"
"I love this recipe, can't go wrong with it and it's always a hit with my family."
"great recipe, will be great to make this summer as it does not have to be baked. I do not add a topping until it is served, that way you can add anything from blackberrie or strawberry sauce."
"i use this recipe all the time as a matter of fact i'm making it for church tommorrow"
"This recipe is very simple and is very enjoyable in a crowd and it doesn't have to be baked. Great recipe."
"We have made this twice now, and both times this cheesecake is gone in a day. We substituted blueberries the second time....DELISH!!"
"My mom makes her cheesecake like this, but only uses 8oz of cream cheese. Soooo delicous! You can also add 1/2 cup of cocoa powder and another 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and make it a chocolate cheesecake. Just use a chocolate crust! You can swirl choc. syrup on top for a nice presentation."
"Simply Delicious!!! Great, Fast, and Easy. I highly recommend you try this recipe. This one is a keeper. The only problem is the pie was gone so fast! ;)"
"Have not tried it yet... but I'm sure I'll try it soon!"
