“I adapted this recipe from one given to me by my first best friend, Sandy, in 1966,” said Judy Harris of McRae, Georgia. “I often made it for my children and now when they come home for a visit, they still love it. I shared this recipe with a local restaurant owner and he tweaked it for his menu.”
At our church, we give seven performances of a Living Christmas Tree every holiday season—then hold an open house after each one, I've served this lemony cheesecake at those gatherings for years, and it's always gotten raves.
The trick to this tempting treat is pulling a toothpick through rings of melted chocolate to create the web effect. "This no-bake cream cheese pie goes together quickly and tastes delicious," assures Jan White, Plainview, Nebraska. "It's fun to serve, too, because it never fails to draw comments."
"A FRIEND gave me this recipe, and I love it so much! The secret is in the baking—I just let it barely show little bubbles on the surface before I take it out of the oven. You don't want cheesecake to bake too long."
In Bethalto, Illinois, Rhonda Miller prepares a light, creamy filling with mild citrus flavor, then spoons it over a simple vanilla wafer crust. The yummy result makes an appealing ending to a summer meal.
This light and yummy pineapple dessert looks prettiest when it's garnished with fresh strawberries. I serve this cool dessert at summer picnics or family get-togethers. It's a hit anytime of year!

I love the scent of lavender, and the edible flowers make this cheesecake one of the most unique I have ever tasted. You can use lavender honey in this recipe for extra flavor, but even without it, the lavender is very distinct. —Julie Palmer, Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania
