This was one of my mom’s secret recipes.
You will need
1 1/2 C either vanilla wafer or graham cracker crumbs
1/4 stick melted butter
1 pkg INSTANT lemon Jello pudding
2 C whole milk
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
blend the butter with the crumbs. If using graham crackers, add 1 T sugar while blending. Press crumb mixture into 9 inch pie pan, or round aluminum pan and bake at 325° for ten minutes. Cool completely.
To your softened cream cheese, add 3/4 C milk that has been microwaved 30 seconds. Using mixer, blend well.
Add the remainder of chilled milk (1 1/4C), jello pudding, and blend until thickened. Pour into crust and chill until set.
X likes cherry pie filling for his topping. Strawberries, cut up and mixed with sugar work nicely as well.
