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 was actually a little shocked about how easy this recipe was! I liked it so much, I wrote about it on my recipe blog at http://recipes-that-worked.blogspot.com/2010/07/my-husband-and-i-made-two-recipes-from.html

Hi Surely 15 digestive biscuits for the base isn't enough or is that a typo? What should it be? Thanks
