Positive aspects of the product (pros): Great flavor
Cons: Didn't quite set up well enough.

This is a great cheesecake - I made it for a family gathering and everyone loved it. I think I'll use 2 envelopes of gelatin next time. I used blueberries - and the fruit puree was too liquidy and didn't swirl well. I just ended up with a light purple cheesecake. Next time I'll try mixing a little of the cheesecake mixture with the fruit puree before swirling.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Easy to make
Cons: Swirl mix too liquidy & wasn't sweet enough

This cheesecake was ok.....maybe I did something wrong. The swirl mix was t0o luquid & one envelope of gelatin wasn't enough. Also it coul've used a bit more sweetner. I would suggest adding about 1/4 more of sweetener.
