This was a huge hit at our last Red Hattering!
1 (3 ounce) package lemon Jell-O
1 cup boiling water
8 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup granulated sugar
4 Tablespoons lemon juice (less if you don't want too much lemon)
1 can Carnation Evaporated milk, well chilled
1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, melted
1/4 cup sugar
Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, melted butter or margarine until well blended. Press mixture into 8 x 8 pan.
Dissolve Jell-O in boiling water. Cool until slightly thickened.
Beat cream cheese, sugar and lemon juice with mixer until smooth. Add thickened Jell-O and beat well.
In a separate bowl, beat the Carnation milk until fluffy. Add cream cheese/Jell-O mixture and beat well with mixer.
Line bottom of pan with crushed Graham crackers.
Pour in filling and top with more crushed Graham crackers.
Chill at least 4 hours and serve with fresh fruit and whipped cream.
(Omit the lemon juice and try a different flavor of jello for a little variety.)
