I just made this and it turned out great. Did a double recipe and put it into a 10 inch spring form. Used frozen raspberries and just added them into cream cheese mix. I remember my mom made something like this a few years ago, and hers was soup like a previous reviewer as well. She had not used enough gelatin and had not properly soaked and warmed it. Mine was thick before I even put it into the pan and chilled it. I used vanilla oreos for the crust and omitted the butter. Crumbed the cookies with icing by pulsing in the food processor, then warmed for 40 seconds in the microwave then pressed into pan. Omitted the butter.

I made this cheesecake and substituted the blueberries for cherries by using pie-filling cherries and drained the filling so I would only have cherries. It was absolutely delicious! Perfect for a mid-afternoon snack!
