No Bake Cheesecake

November 1, 2015

It’s still no bake everything weather here in South Florida. The thermometer outside today read 92 degrees, in the shade. I believe the local weather stations are paid by the chambers since I never see correct temperatures on the news.  This cheesecake will get you through any day all year long. Enjoy.

    My No -Bake Cheesecake has a can of sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and cream cheese. It’s very lemony and one that was popular in the 1970’s.

      Your recipe sound great too, but less sweet than mine which has about 1/3 Cup of lemon juice… not sure, it’s been so long.

        Thanks for your visit. I like this one as it is just right for me regarding the balance of sweet and tart.
