Fluffy Cheesecake

For any of you who remember the old Woolworth stores, well
they served an incredible cheesecake that people just couldn't
get enough of, and these people would beg for the recipe,
just to be told it was a secret.
Well bloggy friends I am here to share the delights!

Five Ingredients:
  • graham cracker crust
  • 1 pkg lemon Jello
  • 1 8 oz pkg philadelphia cream cheese
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1 can Pet brand milk


Optional ~ Make your own crust: Crush 30 graham crackers in food processor or zipped baggie; mix with melted butter and form crust in 9 x 13 pan; set aside.

Dissolve 1 package lemon Jello in 1 C hot water. Cream together cheese with 1 C sugar. Add mixture to syrupy Jello. Whip 1 large can Pet brand milk. (chill before whipping) Add to cheese and pour into prepared graham cracker crust and chill.

FYI- your sidebar is actually on the bottom of your blog paige now. It looks as though your pretty and sparkly HUGS heart caused that, but I can't be sure. :)

I *LOVE* cheesecake! Pet brand milk? Is that sweetened condensed?

At 2:14 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Sounds greaaat...I love cheesecake....I will have tomake this soooon.

At 2:17 PM, Blogger Pamela said...

It is evaporated milk another brand name is Carnation. It always sits right next to the sweetened condensed milk. :)

At 2:29 PM, Blogger Michelle said...

I love cheesecake! Yummm! Thanks for sharing!

Is the PET brand milk the same thing as Carnation condensed milk or is it evaporated milk?

At 2:58 PM, Blogger Pretty Lady said...

Cheesecake is my favorite! And this is easy to make. Thank you so much for sharing it!

At 4:58 PM, Blogger Stacey said...


Oh, and the focaccia bread from my
post is Italian! It is my Nanna's recipe passed down through generations from Milan, Italy. (Although it was I who added the used of a food processor!)

Of course I remember the Woolworth's 5&10¢ stores! This sounds delish and I'm pretty sure it's the same one Mom used to make. Haven't tried it in yrs though!
Thanks so much for your prayers and concern about my husband. Your friendship is truly appreciated!
PS Your sidebar looks fine to me...

Pamela, I think I want you to come and stay with me for awhile and cook (and bake too). You have the yummiest recipes.

At 7:59 PM, Blogger Dawn said...

MMMM. Looks so yummy and easy. Doesn't fit too well with my quest to lost those same 40 pounds again!

Thanks for the kind words. They mean so much to me. It was a very difficult bunch of years, and we do still need to hold him up daily, because Satan does not like it that my son has pulled away from his grip.

About my new look - Kristen (daughter) is the talented one who found it and loaded it for me. She's really good at this technology stuff. I just take advantage of her!

At 8:31 PM, Blogger Amy said...

All I can say is ~ YUMMERS! I think I'll talk my hubby into making that for me ;o)

At 8:37 PM, Blogger Larae said...

I love your new background! Very pretty. I'm dreading all the leaves falling off the trees and the big snow storms hitting. I think it's time to move somewhere where it doesn't snow..again! ;)

Are there 2 more beautiful words in the English language? Fluffy cheesecake.
I see you're in Tampa...I'm in Gainesville most of the time, but we bounce around with my husband's work. We're in the panhandle right now. I actually know someone in Tampa that was a property lawyer at one point!
Enjoy this weather! :)

At 1:54 PM, Blogger Michelle said...

Thanks for clearing up for me about the milk :) I thought it was the same thing as carnation - I just didn't know if it was supposed to be evaporated or condensed :)
