Delicous and easy dessert

By Tasia Boland

This is a simple reciepe I made for my entire family and it was a hit. If you are a fan of cheesecake, I am sure you are going to love it. I also used Smart Balance Cream cheese and Smart balance butter sticks. Each product is half the fat than reg. butter and cream cheese and still gave a rich yummy taste. I found the butter at Wal-Mart and the cream cheese at Tops.
