    hannahactually's Note:

    I am not a big cheesecake fan, but this is absolutely scrumptious! It is definitely one of my favorite desserts. I can never get enough of it. An added bonus is that it is super-easy to make! It's not at all tart, as some lemon recipes are, and the cream cheese flavor is just enough. Delicious! It's perfect for pot-lucks, get-togethers...anything! It does require refrigeration before serving; cook time includes refrigeration time.

      This is really easy to make, and has such a great, light lemony flavor. The crust is great, and without sugar! I used pecans. I also made this lighter by using light cream cheese, and used Splenda instead of powdered sugar, and sugar-free pudding mix. I cut recipe in half and made it in a 8-inch cake pan. I am going to make it with chocolate pudding next time! Thanks for posting.
