I'm baffled as to why this doesn't work out for some people.I made 5 of these for a potluck dinner (I was resposible for bringing all the dessert) and I needed something very quick and very easy to throw together. I bought pre made graham cracker crusts,and a few different varieties of toppings, and was able to whip this up in batches in my food processor in about 20 minutes. I stuck them in the fridge for about 12 hours, and I had a dessert that everybody thought I slaved over and looked and tasted great! I'm wondering if people may have decreased the lemon juice. This is an integral part to the taste and the consistency of this cheesecake. It takes care of that sweetened condensed milk taste too!!
I made this the other day and I substituted fat free cream cheese and fat free sweet and condensed milk. And I used a reduced fat and calorie gram cracker pre made crust. I baked it for 25 min. at 325 and it was perfect not runny at all:)The pieces came out wonderfully. My husband didn't even know the difference!! Then I toppped it with the splenda sweetened canned cherries. Although the sweet and condensed milk is not sugar free it still is a much healthier tasty treat your fam will love...when you bake the pie the result and texture is that of a traditional cheesecake.
