4 Ingredient, No-Bake Cheesecake
- 1 Can of sweetened condensed milk (14 oz.)
- 8 oz. Cool Whip
- 1/3 Cup of lemon or lime juice
- 8 oz. Package of cream cheese.
The most important part of this recipe is to leave the cream cheese out for a couple hours at room temperature. The cream cheese will become soft and smooth, and create a smooth texture for the pie. (Not doing so, will create horrible lumps of cream cheese).
After the ream cheese is softened enough, test to see if it spreads easily with a plastic spatula.
In a mixing bowl, mix all ingredients. Add the lemon/lime juice last. The reaction of the citrus juice will start to harden the pie mixture almost immediately.
On low speed, blend well with mixer (about 2 minutes), making sure all ingredients are incorporated.
Immediately pour mixture into a waiting graham crust. Refrigerate for 1 to 1.5 hours. Serve chilled.
