    Used this today but to make mini cheesecakes - halved everything in the recipe (except biscuits because "1 packet" is not an easy measurement to follow, I just estimated with that) and got 7 ramekin sized cheesecakes, for my Christmas Day dessert (not just mine ...)! The topping is super creamy and tasty, without being sickly like some cheesecake. I'm pretty pleased with my first cheesecake attempt ^_^ - 23 Dec 2014

    Really easy. It's rich and makes a large dessert. Great for a bring-and-share picnic. - 28 Jun 2016
