Ingredients

How to make it

  • Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Chill until slightly thickened (I chill this until it is the consistency of an uncooked egg white). Cream together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Add the gelatin and blend well. Fold in stiffly whipped Milnot(this can be done with and electric mixer). Mix Graham cracker crumbs and melted butter together; pack 2/3 of the mixture on bottom and sides of a 9x13-inch pan (or larger). Add filling and sprinkle with remaining crumbs. Chill several hours or overnight.
  • Cut into squares and serve plain (my favorite way) or garnished with fruit.
  • have never tried using any other type of canned evaporated milk as Milnot is what the recipe calls for. It is a different type of canned milk. If you can not find Minot in your area, they have a website where you can purchase it www.milnot.com. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I have. I also have tried using a different flavored jello like strawberry and cherry - I didn't like it as much as with the original lemon flavor. Enjoy!

    I grew up down the street from the local Woolworth's and going to the lunch counter was always a special Saturday treat. What a wonderful memory.

    This is so good. Milnot is just can evaporated milk. It is best if you refrigerate the can milk a day before you make it. Don't ask me why,lol. I have an old amish recipe that is the same. I grew up with woolworths as well. When I found my amish recipe they made the milk very cold and it whipped up very high. This is not a traditional cheesecake but it is soooooooo good!!
