At first I was going to make an allergy friendly type of cheesecake. But when my family found out I was making cheesecake, they literally begged me to make the real deal. Now while I have some food allergies and food intolerance's, I have to admit that there is nothing quite like a smooth, creamy cheesecake made with real cream cheese. So I decided to follow my families advice and make them an honest-to-goodness real cheesecake.
And while I was only able to enjoy a small sliver of the cheesecake, it was ah-maz-ing! Cheesecake is one of my absolute favorite desserts. Add to that another dessert favorite, pumpkin, and I was in love. My family feels the same way it seems, because they devoured it, and not a crumb was left by the end of the day. What with it being a no-bake version, you can bet I will be making this easy pie for my family again through the summer months. What a great way to beat the heat. :)
