"no where in the recipe does it ever say to add the other 1 1/4 cups of suger. I was getting ready to put this into the oven and felt like I was forgetting something. I had to scoop the filling back out of the crust and fold in the sugar...i will be very disappointed if this ruined the outcome."
"PS - This recipe does not instruct you to add sugar. Please take note - if you want to make a big block of cheese this is a great recipe! Otherwise, I would maybe add the sugar at the first stage of the recipe. Good Luck!"
