I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Lemon Pudding Cheesecake Pie

Sometimes the oldies are the goodies. This vintage Jello pudding recipe is one of the them.  

8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
2 cups milk
1 - 4 serving package lemon instant pudding

1 - 8" pie crust

Prepare the pie crust.  If using pastry, bake and cool. 
You can also use a graham crust which is probably the favourite crust for cheesecakes.

I used this Saltine Cracker Pie Crust 

With the whisk attachment blend the cream cheese with 1/2 cup of milk, then add the remaining milk and the instant pudding mix.

Once well blended pour into the pie shell and chill a few hours.

Garnish with whipped cream and coloured sugar. (Just add a drop or 2 of food colouring to 1-2 tbsps of granulated sugar)
