Memorial Day Recipe



I've been making this since I was in high school and I got the itch to make it again for Memorial Day with a patriotic twist. I used frozen blueberries I had on hand and cherry pie filling for the decorating. Emma Claire studied my every move and we discussed our country and the reason we celebrate Memorial Day while decorating it. I want my children to realize the importance of this day, living their lives with humility and gratefulness for the freedoms they enjoy.

Cherry Topped Cheesecake
1 graham cracker crust (6 oz.)
1 package cream cheese (8 oz.), softened
1/3 cup of lemon juice
1 can condensed milk (14 oz.)
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Cream softened cream cheese. Beat in the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract and the lemon juice until the batter is smooth; pour the batter into the graham cracker crust. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. Yield: 1 cheesecake.

May be topped with cherries, strawberries, or drizzled with chocolate, but delicious plain!

This is beautiful, and on top of that an exciting recipe for me! My Emma can have dairy now, but still can't have eggs, and every good cheesecake recipe calls for eggs...except this one. Yum!!

I recognize this recipe as the one your dad loved when your family would come over!! We still make it...can't go wrong. I do like the way you did the topping! Very clever, Marybeth. :)

Laurie, that must be frustrating. :-( I am so glad you can use this!

Miss Heather, I remember making this as a teenager at our house in Harrington - 10 years ago! Thanks for the compliment! :-)
