This dazzling dessert is a dieter's delight. A light and refreshing alternative to classic cheesecake, the slim sweet calls for gelatin and lower-fat cheeses. Eva Wright, who sent the recipe from Grant, Alabama, recommends, "Vary the gelatin and pie filling flavors to suit your family's taste."
Toasted sesame seeds add crunch to the graham cracker crust of this luscious dessert. "Years ago, I led a homemaking course on dairy foods, and this pie was adapted from one of the recipes I used in that class. Everyone always wants seconds." —Audrey Armour, Thamesford, Ontario
My family loves cheesecake, but we don't care for the fat that usually comes with it. This pretty fruit-topped alternative offers a creamy texture and full flavor—without the guilt! —Deborah Lobe of Olympia, Washington
This dessert gets added spark from a gingersnap crust and a luscious lemon sauce. The mix of sweet and tart is unexpected and delightful. I came up with the recipe based on several others I encountered on a trip to California with my husband for our 15th anniversary.
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.
