I had my doubts about this "No Bake Cheese Cake", it came from Pinterest....

I'm a cheese cake lover and when I found this recipe on Pinterest I had my doubts.  No bake hugh! (?)
Well I gathered the 4 ingredients and put it together... (Yeah, this will be good with only 4 ingredients?)
1 8oz cool whip
1 Package cream cheese
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1 8oz can sweet condensed milk

I whipped the cream cheese with the lemon and milk until smooth, then added the cool whip on a very slow speed.. used the rubber scraper and folded rather than whip.
Made the graham cracker crust and popped it in the fridge for about an hour.

  I'll tell you what,, it took all of about 10 minutes of my time and the Mr. had a slice after only a half hour in the fridge... I'm going to have to hide a slice for me.. he had another right away.  It's that good.  I think for the next time I make it I will add a bit more lemon juice, I love the tang of lemon.
It was a bit mild for my taste but it was really good as is!  I'll tell you, "my doubts were put to rest".  I loved this cheese cake.
 If your expecting company this Holiday Season,, give this a try and I might suggest making two.
It will not last long in your house.

Mmmm...this sounds so good right now!

It looks yummie too.
I may have to see about making this. I suppose you could use Limes? I'm out of lemons.
The Honey would like it in this house too!

This cheese cake looks so good! Thank you for posting. I have family coming in for Christmas tomorrow and this will be an easy dessert I can make quickly. The best part is I have the ingredients on hand all the time. Can't wait to try this!

quick and easy! sounds good...
We usually go 'all out' here with homemade meals and treats. {I'm eating fresh made chocolate chip cookies right now!} This recipe will be one my granddaughter can make all by herself! I love baked cheesecake, and make them at Easter and Christmas. Maybe this year we'll just do this one. {a bit less fattening, I'm sure!}

Thanks for stopping by. I found the Coke ads on vintageadbrowser.com. If you just click the pics I have on my post they should go straight to that website. You have some awesome, awesome decorating ideas. I am not a very great decorator. I seem to make everything too difficult when I come up with an idea. I love your blog...it inspires me to Do Something. Happy Holidays.

I had to try this recipe yesterday! I followed your recipe but instead of 1/3 cup of lemon juice, I increased it to 1/2 cup of lemon juice because I wanted a little more tang, too! ;D Well, after two hours in the fridge the whole family ate a thin slice and the reaction was...ok.
In fact, it tasted a little...bitter.
Nobody wanted any tonight, but I ate a piece again and WOW! WOW! WOW! it was great. Everyone then wanted a slice and we ate the whole pie! So, when I increased the lemon juice, it was much better after 24 hours! Thanks for the recipe!
