ingredients

1 package (18.5 ounce size) yellow cake mix
4 eggs
2 tablespoons oil
2 packages (8 ounce size) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
pie filling (cherry, pineapple, blueberry, strawberry, etc.)

directions

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Measure out 1 cup of dry cake mix; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, stir together remaining dry cake mix, 1 egg, and oil (mixture will be crumbly). Press crust mixture evenly into bottom and of the way up the sides of a greased 13"x9"x2" pan. (I just put it on the bottom.)

In the same bowl, blend cream cheese and sugar together. Add 3 eggs and reserved cake mix; beat 1 minute at medium speed. At low speed gradually add milk, lemon juice, and vanilla; mix until smooth. Pour into crumb crust. Bake at 300 degrees F for 45 to 55 minutes, or until center is firm.

Cool to room temperature. Spoon pie filling over cheesecake; cover and chill 1 hour before serving. Store in refrigerator. Baked cheesecake can be frozen with a covering of foil.

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this recipe was to prepare. One thing to point out, though, is that the recipe calls for a 13'x9'x2' pan and the picture shows a springform pan. Well, I used a springform pan and the baking time was more like 2 hours rather than the suggested 45-55 min. In the end, it was worth the wait!

I was impressed by how good the crust turned out from using a cake mix. I had never seen that before! Simple cheesecake to make and turned out good.

Surprisingly, this was quite good. I had company to serve it to and they asked for the recipe. It was easy to prepare. I baked it in a Springform pan but had to bake much longer than it says. It turned out great, easy to serve. I used Comstock Cherry Pie filling. I will definitely make this again.

REVIEW: recipe rating
Quite tasty... opted to use spring form pan versus pie plate, used lemon cake versus golden and had to increase baking time to 60 min at 300f and an additional 10min at 325f
