This was easy and tasty.
I used gluten free biscuits. Also I used Sainsbury's Black Cherry compote as a topping.

I did this recipe and it turned out exactly like the picture. The taste is very good as well. Will make again in the future, but I will not put sugar for the base as it was too sweet. Otherwise, its perfect ;)

Agree with amber, it really did feel like cheating! So quick and easy, but absolutely delicious. Used chocolate biscuits as the base to give it a bit of a black forest feel and it was divine.

So so easy to make, almost felt like cheating!! Wished I had not put any sugar in the base, it did not need it. I used Sainsbury's economy cream cheese which worked fine meaning it was nice and cheap!! Although the topping was really expensive, anyone know where I could get it cheaper than the nearly £2 I had to pay??

Enjoyed by all my family. I find canned cherry pie filling a bit gloopy and sweet so not my first choice cheesecake but this recipe wins for ease and simplicity. I thought the biscuit base was fine.

Easy and yummy. Bit more butter used to make biscuit base less crumbly.

I have made this several times and it has been fab. Everyone has been very impressed that has seen it. My tin was bigger than the one suggested and i found 1.5x base ingredients and doubling the filling ingredients worked well.

Lovely cheesecake and very easy to make. I found the base a bit too crumbly. Any ideas?

I made this when I had friends coming to stay. Like me they loved it and took a copy of the recipe home.
It was very easy to make and the leftovers were still good two days after it was made. (we ate out the next day or it would have gone)

This was a great recipe and was enjoyed by all. Tasted fantastic. Cant wait to make it again. Next time I would probably make more base only because I like a thick base.

Very easy. I added some grapents to the base for crunch.
