    I had planned to make another Allrecipe cheesecake recipe, but couldn't find one of the main ingredients anywhere, so I decided to try this one. When I first read the recipe, I thought "Oh man! That's going to be too cheesey!" But it was excellent! A little goes a long way. Since I had already bought graham cracker crumbs for the other recipe, I decided to make a base for this cake using a mixture of crumbs, sugar and melted butter. Good decision - it tasted great. I omitted the top layer of ladyfingers and just put the light cherry pie filling right on top of the cheese mixture. Excellent!  -  17 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is one of my favorite cheesecake recipes. My mom used to make this when I was a little girl. I usually only use 11 ounces of cream cheese instead of the 19 ounces the recipe calls for. I think it makes a much lighter cheesecake.I like to top it off with either blueberry or strawberry pie filling.You have to try it, it's really good.  -  01 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I really found it hard to find ladyfingers because they aren't so readily available here and I was looking around for about 2 hours before realising they werent in the supermarket I was in. I didn't use softened cream cheese so pretty much this recipe was a complete disaster. I could sort of taste how it might have been okay. But I'm giving it 4 stars cause I think would the proper ingredients it would have been okay. Plus mine didn't set? Is that cause I used the wrong cheese and didn't use ladyfingers (I did sub. in some type of soft biscuit which I crumbled)...  -  30 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
