This was so easy and really great for a summer dessert. I made it with reduced fat cream cheese and it seemed to make no difference in the flavor at all. give this a try!

Super easy recipe with great flavors. I kicked up the flavors by adding sliced bananas and toasting the coconut. Next time will forego the pie crust and will use a chocolate cookie crumb crust. Keeper recipe though....

I found this recipe in a Pillsbury booklet you buy in line at the supermarket, I was looking for something to use a Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust I had left over from Christmas. I prefer to make desserts in a tart pan over a pie pan because between my husband and I we can normally consume it all before it goes bad since it yields a smaller amount than a pie pan would. I choose this dessert because I was looking for something more on the lighter side as far as calories go and I've been craving a cheese cake. This dessert was very easy to make and produced a very gourmet looking tart. My husband said this is "some kind of good". He really enjoyed it and I did as well. It will make a nice addition especially to my personal collection of "hot day desserts", this will work nicely in the summer when you're looking for a nice cool and refreshing dessert.

Wow wow wow! Great recipe! Found out on a Saturday morning that my husband wanted to have a lunch meeting at the house. Had everything in the pantry and fridge for this. OUTSTANDING! Everyone at the meeting raved about it! I do recommend keeping a close eye on it because mine was set in less than 20 minutes and my oven does not cook hot. So just keep an eye out. Also, I served it after about 45 minutes of cooling. It was a bit warm but plenty set. In general, the recipe is just awesome because I'm already thinking of using, for instance, vanilla and canned cherry pie topping, rum and crushed apricots, etc. Just a great easy recipe and looks very elegant. I RECOMMEND IT!!!
