I followed the recipe completely and it was great. I made it 2 days in advance because I was concerned that it might be runny but it wasn't. I served it at a baby shower and every one loved it. I put cherries in a dish on the side and let everyone decide if they wanted them or not.
Made this with a premade pie shell crust and halved the recipe, it was a perfect amount. However it didn't come out like my mom's which is almost exactly the same recipe so I don't know what happened. It wasn't really cheesy or lemony enough. Maybe I overwhipped the evaporated milk or didn't use exactly half the jello pack, who knows. Was a bit runny as well. Served with frozen berries boiled with sugar, water and cornstarch.
It was very good!! I changed teh recipe a bit because I didn't have lemon gelitan or evaporated mil. What I did was replace the evaporated milk with a little bit of normalmilk and just cut the amount of lemon juice in half so it wouldn't be sour,but just enough to give it a hint of lemon.
It turned out great though!
Excellent recipe as is. I usually make all the changes recommended by others but not this one. It was very tasty, received lots of compliments and looked wonderful in a glass pan. Thank you.
I have been looking for this recipe for years! My birthday is in August and growing up as a child in the hot and humid Midwest summers, my mother always made this for me as my birthday cake. She died suddenly 10 years ago before I was ever able to get this recipe from her. I tried to recreate it on my own, and could never do it. This is the one! Thank you Dodie (and your mother) so much for making my childhood memories come true!
Everyone begs me to make this cheesecake. I'm now known as the Cheesecake Goddess!
I have used this recipe for many years. It is a favorite because it has less calories than any regular cheesecake. This is a big hit for baby and wedding showers,too.
This cheesecake didn't turn out moist and creamy for me. It had a spongy texture, and the taste was just okay.
