Margaret Vanhorn, Tabor, Iowa, hopes someone has an easy cheesecake recipe to share.

Our readers happily responded to Margaret’s request; among them Lori Boyum of Woodman, Wisconsin, who sent this recipe via email with the subject line “Super Duper Easy Cheesecake” with a note: “Too good to be true! I have mistakenly used only 8 ounces of cream cheese, and it has still turned out delicious. It’s a family favorite.”

this is the recipe my family has used for generations! So simple & delicious. We use the cherry pie filling or canned cherries. Even plain, with no topping is wonderful!!
