How to Make Lemon Chiffon Cheesecake


  1. *At least several hours before, put one can Milnot in the refrigerator to chill.
  2. CRUST: Mix together melted butter,sugar,and graham cracker crumbs in pan with fork to cover bottom evenly.Press down to form crust.Bake at 350 for 8 minutes.
  3. *Before you start, put a large glass mixing bowl in the freezer to get really cold.
  4. Filling:Mix 1 cup boiling water with 1 pack of Lemon Jello. Gradually mix in a brick of softened cream cheese. Set in refrigerator to cool.
  5. Wash your beaters and put them in the freezer (for a few minutes) with the cold mixing bowl that's already in there. Then take the bowl and beaters from the freezer and mix (on high) one can chilled Milnot.
  6. When the Milnot has gotten stiff, gradually add in about 1/4 cup sugar. Then slowly blend in the cream cheese/jello mixture, using bowl scraper to gently scrape sides while mixing. It should have a fluffy, 'whipped' consistency.
  7. Taking bowl scraper, scoop mixture into a prepared graham cracker crust. [Either a 9"x12" pan or 2-9" pie crusts] (crushed graham crackers, real butter, sugar). You can also sprinkle crushed graham crackers over the top.
