Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Cheesecake This recipe is so super easy and quick to make with no fuss. I double up the quantity to make an extra deep and delicious cheesecake. Even the biscuit crumb I double up and this really helps when it comes to slicing and serving - it really keeps the slices solid and together. I also use 3/4 shortcake biscuits and1/4 digestive because I prefer this combination. But overall I love this recipe. I do have a question for Carnation though - could I use Light Condensed Milk and Philadelphia Light in this recipe for a healthier version? Would this affect how it sets?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tasted nice but I think I needed to set more. How long do other people whisk it for? I dad 3 - 5 mins with a hand mixer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to make! This is so easy to make and has always turned out brilliant. Just be aware that it takes quite a bit of time to thicken. I whisk mine for up yo 30 mins
