"Very refreshing easy pie, used real whipping cream and spooned cherry pie filling over the white layer and topped with cocoa filling. A little cherry pie filling on top for decoration. Delicious."

"I will make this again because it was so easy! I would probably use less cool whip or maybe some additional cream cheese to give it a bit of a stronger cheesecake flavor, but overall it was delicious prepared exactly as the recipe calls.

I would make this again, and I would recommend it. We had a heavier dinner, and so this was a perfect, light and fluffy kind of dessert for us and our guests."

"Very nice, light and tasty. Not sure if I cared for the cherry pie filling, might opt for more cool whip and fresh raspberries on the side next time and sprinkle it w/ toasted, sliced almonds. The nice thing is you can make it a day ahead. easy recipe."
