Really easy, and everyone loved it. I cut it into small squares and dipped them in melted chocolate, sort it like cheesecake pops. It made a lot, so it’s great for a crowd

Quick and easy. I melted some leftover chocolate chips and drizzled over the top before baking.

Did you use low fat cream cheese? Sometimes that will make a difference. Was it just the first piece or two that came out hard or all of them?

These were delicious with a little cherry pie filling or strawberry jam on top. My only problem was that the squares didn't come out of the pan very neatly. Any ideas? I chilled it overnight.

This recipe is wonderful! I made 3 batches for an anniversary celebration. I used blueberries and strawberries and my friends loved every bit of it. This is perfect for those who do not like deserts too sweet. Thanks for sharing!
