"One of our favorite no bake cheesecakes. I do add up to a tablespoon of vanilla or 1 1/2 teaspoons of almond flavoring to the "white" layer because we initially found it too bland. Have also tried it with blueberries and enjoyed it that way as well. 1 packet of gelatin equals 2 1/4 - 2 1/2 teaspoons (aprox 7 g)."

"The instructions are confusing. It tells you to mix cream cheese and set aside and then to mix more cream cheese with sugar and stir in gelatin and transfer half of thisto another bowl. How many bowls of cream cheese do we need and how much is in the small bowl and how much is in the large bowl...?"

"I think the crust should have been baked in order to hold its shape, and I totally agree with the "bland" rating. It is much more attractive than it is good tasting."
