*If you like cheesecake as much as I do, but feel guilty using so much cream cheese, this is the recipe for you. Also by sticking with the main structure of the recipe and using your creativity, you can completely change the look and taste like using cherry or blueberry pie filling vs. bananas; chocolate cake mix vs. white; mint extract vs. lemon juice; pudding topping vs. whipped, etc . . . With the many servings, this is perfect for large families. May the Lord bless you richly!
