5 Minute Cheesecake
- Graham Cracker Crust
- 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
- 8 oz sweetened whipped cream
- 1/3 cup lemon or lime juice
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
One of two important steps in this recipe is to leave the cream cheese out at room temperature for a couple of hours. It will become soft and smooth, making it easier to create a smooth texture when you combine ingredients. Unsoftened cream cheese will leave lumps. To test the texture, see if the cream cheese will spread easily with a spatula.
In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except lemon/lime juice. Use a hand mixer on low speed to blend well, for about two minutes. The second important step is to add lemon or lime juice last. The citrus will begin to harden the mixture almost immediately.
Pour mixture into the waiting graham cracker crust. For a gluten-free alternative, use muffin cups.
Refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours. Serve chilled.
