Love the taste of cheesecake but hate the amount of preparation? Here is a simple, delicious no- bake cheesecake that is ready to serve in only an hour! This soft-set cheesecake does not have the same texture as a baked cheesecake, but does have all the flavor!
* 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
* 3 ounce package cream cheese, softened
* 14 oz. can regular sweetened condensed milk (NOT evaporated, NOT low fat)
* 1/3 cup lemon juice
* 1 tsp Vanilla (*optional)
* 1 9" graham cracker or walnut pie crust
In medium bowl whip both packages of cream cheese until smooth and fluffy, add half of the can of sweetened condensed milk gradually, beating constantly. Once half of the milk has been added and the mixture is creamy/smooth, add the lemon juice and beat until smooth. Continue adding the remaining sweetened condensed milk until mixture is thick and well incorporated. If you'd like you can add 1 tsp of vanilla, this is entirely optional.
Spoon into prepared crust and chill at least one hour. The filling is quite thick, as you can see in the photo.
