2014 Kitchen Experiment #5 - No-Bake Cheesecake

     It works! I was skeptical, but I'm a believer now. Courtesy of my daughter Laura, this no-brainer of a recipe is a quick 'go to' when the cheesecake craving hits and 'from scratch' just won't do.
     Six simple ingredients, one of them optional: one can of condensed milk, eight ounces of softened cream cheese, one tablespoon of vanilla extract, 1/8 of a cup of lemon juice, a graham cracker pie crust, and a can of fruit in syrup, if you so desire.
     Mix everything together but the fruit until smooth, pour on the pie crust. That's it! It even starts to set before you refrigerate it. The flavor is rich, the texture is silky and caresses your palate. Craving crisis averted!
     I made the mistake of buying an extra-large crust without making adjustments to the rest of the ingredients, and my mixture was too thin and barely made it to the edge of the tin. I had to spoon the servings on the plates rather than cut neat slices. Didn't stop my 86-year-old mother from licking the plate clean, though!
