Lemon Cream Cheese Pie




This lemon cream cheese pie is another of my favorite recipes.  In my "younger days" I was known to eat a whole lemon cheese pie all by myself!  Yes it's that good.  The picture shows the same pie pan that my Mom has used since I was a child.

  • 3/4 stick of salted butter
  • 1 1/2 packages of Cinnamon Crisps
  • 8 ounce package of cream cheese
  • 1 3/4 cup of milk
  • Small package of Jello Instant Lemon Pudding
  • Optional Items: Strawberries, rasberries, blueberries.


Instructions:

1- Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees

2- Melt butter in pie pan in the oven

3- Crush the cinnamon crisps

4- Mix cinnamon crisps and melted butter together in the pie pan.  Remove a small amount of the cinnamon crisp mixture to be used later as a garnish for the top of the pie.  Form the rest of the mixture into a pie crust.

5- Bake crust for 3-4 minutes to "set" crust.  Set aside, or in refrigerator to completely cool.

6- ****Optional step**** Line the bottom of the cooled pie crust with your choice of the sliced berries

7- In mixing bowl, whip together 1 3/4 Cup of milk and the room temperature cream cheese

8- Add small box of instant lemon pudding, and blend for 2 minutes

9- Pour filling mixture into pie crust, garnish with leftover Cinnamon Crisps.

10- ****Optional**** Garnish the top of the pie with sliced berries of your choice

11- Put completed pie in refrigerator until firm.

I hope you really enjoy this pie as much as I do.
