No Bake Cheese Cake!

I am making ice so that I can make ice cream, so I decided to use my cream cheese to make cheese cake today. That of course means that I will have to make more cream cheese tonight!

I was going to make up the recipe as I went along, but then found one on the back of the unflavored gelatin box. It confirmed that I was on the right track, which made me feel pretty good. It was also nice to not have to "guesstimate" on ingredient amounts.

I did use my homemade cream cheese and didn't want to take the time to make a crust, though my quality control team (husband) and I both thought a graham cracker crust would have made it better.

No Bake Cheese Cake

  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin (2 t.)
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 c. boiling water ( I heated it in microwave to good & hot)
Mix until gelatin is dissolved, about 5 minutes.

Beat until smooth:
  • 2 c. (2-8 oz. pkgs. ) cream cheese
  • 2 t. vanilla
Add hot mixture gradually the cream cheese mixture while beating. Pour into
prepared crust in 9 " pan. Chill until set.

It passed quality control!
