Tropical Cheesecake

Jean Fisher


My mother's recipe. This is easy to make.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Cool, creamy, and tart - the perfect blend for a refreshing summer pie. The sugary, buttery crust is divine. By not baking the crust, you really taste the great buttery flavor. We loved the little bits of pineapple in every bite. Add this recipe to your must-make summertime desserts. The Test Kitchen
