There are three things I require in all of my recipes: quick, easy and good. I don't have any long, complicated, expensive-to-make recipes because, to me, that would take most of the joy out of cooking.
In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in the sweetened condensed milk until mixture is smooth. Stir in the 1/4 cup lemon juice and pour filling into prepared pie shell. Chill until set. May be topped with pie filling of your choice, whipped topping and thin lemon slices for garnish, or plain whipped topping, if desired, or leave plain. Enjoy.

I make an easy cheesecake that takes
I mix jello into the hot water and mix the cream cheese into it. Mix a half the milk called for on the pudding box and mix all together and pour into crust. I made this for my husband by using sugar free products as he is a diabetic.
Hope this helps (02/10/2007)
I posted a recipe for a no bake cheese cake under the title of Pudding Cheese Cake on this site. It is very easy and good, and can be made with instant lemon pudding mix.
Just put Pudding Cheese Cake in the search box on this site. (02/11/2007)

I am looking for a Recipe for Lemon Cheesecake. I tasted one that had a graham cracker crust, a layer of what tasted like cream cheese and probably dream whip, another layer of Jell-O lemon pie filling topped with either whipped cream or dream whip. I could try to duplicate but it would be easier to get a recipe.

What you described sounds like a recipe my sister gave me called Lemon Lush. The only thing that is different is the crust. Here goes; For the crust you need 1 stick softened butter,1 cup flour and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Mix well then press into bottom of a glass 9"x9" baking dish. Bake at 350% for 10 - 12 minutes. Cool completely. --Layer # 1; Mix together 1 8oz. pkg. softened cream cheese,1 cup powdered sugar and 1 cup cool whip. Pour over cooled crust.--Layer #2; Mix 2 pkgs Lemon instant pudding with 3 cups milk and pour over cream cheese layer.Top with more cool whip and chill well. Enjoy!!! PS You may substitute chocolate pudding for the Lemon. Also you could use a graham cracker crust if you prefer. Judy (07/13/2006)
