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.
