ISO biscuit-base, decadent cheesecake-y recipe
Does anyone have a recipe for a biscuit base (choc or not) no-bake recipe for something similiar to cheesecake but not cheesecake? The higher the dairy/fat content the better, chocolate or vanilla. Sour cream as an ingredient would be great but not 100% necessary. Thanks!
From my grandmother. Always made with graham cracker base at our home but you could use biscuit/shortbread cookie crushed as the base if you want.
1 large can (12 oz) evaporated milk (chilled) – (1 ½ c. milk also works ok)
1 small package lemon jello
1 Cup hot water
1 small package (4 oz) cream cheese
2 teaspoons vanilla
8 graham crackers
Mix jello and water in 1st bowl. Let partially set.
Crush graham crackers at pat into bottom of 8 inch x 8 inch pan. Reserve a few cracker crumbs to sprinkle on top of the cheesecake.
Cream together sugar & cream cheese in 2nd bowl. Whip milk in 3rd (largest) bowl. Add cheese mixture and jello. Add 2 tsp. vanilla and whip until light & flufffy.
Pour whipped mixture gently over the graham cracker base. Put a few cracker crumbs on top.
Chill 8-12 hours (overnight).
Top with (canned) pie filling – cherry is excellent.
