Lu, who is currently spending a year in Brazil, asked me for my cheesecake recipe. Since it's my most commonly requested recipe, I figure I may as well post it here!
Easy No-Bake Cheesecake
1 package (about 12 graham crackers), crushed
1/4 cup sugar
1 stick butter, melted
Mix well and press into the bottom of an 8x8 pan.
2 8oz packages cream cheese, softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Whip cream cheese with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, making sure to scrape sides of bowl. Add the sweetened condensed milk; whip again and keep sides scraped. Add lemon juice, vanilla and nutmeg, mix well. Pour on top of crust. Refrigerate until firm. Serve with fruit topping, if desired.
