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.

It passed quality control!
