This dessert needs 3 to 4 hours refrigeration time so make sure you make it early in the day.

I was looking for something different for my Sunday dinner dessert and found this recipe in a church supper cookbook. Almost everyone in my family likes cheesecake and this looked like a quick and easy one to try. Everyone loved it. I have served it most of the time without the fruit topping but it is good with it. I have also served it with other toppings besides the strawberry one. I just substitute another frozen fruit for the strawberries. So far I have tried frozen cherries and frozen blackberries.I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does.
