"I have never ever made cheesecake. And it has been a long time since I have been in the kitchen. I was second guessing myself . It was easy looking back at it. But I made it for my new wife and she was totally in shock to see and taste it. Thank you for the recipe. I will be using it again."

"This has been our go-to recipe for cheesecake for years! It's so easy to make - just be sure to beat the softened cream cheese with the sugar for at least 3-5 minutes. We've also substituted regular and light cream cheeses, and 3 large eggs for the egg substitute with no problems. It tastes great with or without the pie filling on top, and is a very forgiving recipe. It's so good, we have to make two as we have trouble cooling and chilling it - the first one is usually eaten before it even cools! Thanks so much for this recipe Vera! You've made our celebrations much sweeter!"

"VERY good! I did make a thin graham crust with mine, but substituted the sugar with Stevia, and used fresh raspberries & blackberries as topping. It was so good I wanted to eat the whole thing! ha!"
