Apple Cheesecake Recipe

After a big meal, this fluffy no-bake cheesecake with its deliciously different applesauce and peanut topping really hits the spot. It needs no crust, and the light cheese layer is smooth and creamy. -Adeline Piscitelli, Sayreville, New Jersey

"I don't know where you shop,  but look in the aisle with the jello,  graham cracker crust, and pie fillings.  It use to be in a pink and white box.  Knox Gelentin .  It also use to have a picture on the box with a ladies hand showing off the long nails.  But it comes in packs too, i believe.  

I love this cheesecake.  "

"I MADE THIS CHEESECAKE AND EVERYTHING TURNED OUT, BUT LET ME TELL YOU IT JUST WASNT GOOD. THE FILLING WAS JUST OK AND THE TOPPING WASN NOT THAT GREAT. THE THING ABOUT IT IS JUST THAT THE 2 FLAVORS REALLY DID NOT EVEN GO TOGETHER WELL. THE PEOPLE WHO TRIED IT SAID THEY LIKED THE TOPPING, OR THAT THEY LIKED THE FILLING. NOT ONE PERSON LIKE THE 2 TOGETHER AND HAD TWO THAT SAID THEY DIDNT LIKE EITHER, ONE PERSON WHO SAID THEY LIKED IT. I THINK THAT PERSON WAS JUST TRYING TO BE NICE."
