MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 12, 2011

"Good recipe...not a super sweet dessert, but cheesecake normally isn't anyway. I also baked it in the oven at 350 degrees and it worked very well. I used low-fat cream cheese and it worked just as well! My brothers loved it and one of them requested it for his birthday dessert (instead of a cake)."

"I made this recipe with a brownie mix instead of making it from scratch. I also cooked it in a regular oven according to the directions on the brownie box. It turned out great! Very yummy! :)"

"I baked these in the regular oven, I have my doubts about baking stuff in the microwave."

MY REVIEW

"The microwave thing did NOT work for me - not even close to done when it said it would be - continued to microwave it for more than 20 minutes, came out, cooled and refridgerated it. Then it was hard as a rock. Not good. I'll stick to other TOH recipes, thanks."
