  • Cheesecake Factory's new cheesecake flavor, "Lemon Meringue Cheesecake"

    Yesterday, I had a piece of Cheesecake Factory's new cheesecake flavor, "Lemon Meringue Cheesecake".
    .
    I thought I had tasted something exactly like it before. Then it hit me. I could not believe it tastes EXACTLY LIKE the "No Bake Lemon Cloud Pie" recipe below, that I have made many times. Give both a try and see if you don't agree. The recipe nails the flavor of the Cheesecake Factory's "Lemon Meringue Cheesecake".
    .
    .
    This is really easy to make and really good on a hot day.
    .
    No Bake Lemon Cloud Pie
    .
    1/3 cup of lemon juice (juice of 2 lemons, a little bottled ok)
    Zest from 2 lemons (or to taste)
    1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk, (don't use evaporated milk)
    1 (8 oz) package Cool Whip, thawed (light ok)
    1 9-inch prepared graham cracker pie crust
    .
    In a mixing bowl add the lemon zest and lemon juice, stir to mix well.
    .
    Using a whisk, beat in the sweetened condensed milk until the mixture is smooth and uniform.
    .
    Using a rubber spatula, carefully fold in the cool whip until mixture is uniform and well mixed. Careful not to deflate the Cool Whip while mixing.
    .
    Spoon mixture into prepared graham cracker pie crust and place in the refrigerator to chill and set. At least 2 hours.
    .
    Serve chilled.
    .
    Makes 6 to 8 servings.

      Here's a version by Eagle Sweetened Condensed Milk that uses whipped cream:


      Lemon Cloud Pie

      1 (14 oz.) can Eagle Brand® Sweetened Condensed Milk
      1/2 cup lemon juice
      Yellow food coloring
      1 cup (1/2 pt.) heavy cream, whipped
      1 (6 oz.) prepared graham cracker or baked pie crust

      STIR together sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and food coloring, if desired, in medium bowl. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into prepared crust.
      CHILL 3 hours or until set. Garnish as desired.

        Being super easy I thought I would give a whirl and try it. Bad idea, it was so good that DGS took the bowl, spoon and ate the whole darn bowl full before it even hit the crust. He loved it. I then made another one after he was in bed and got a taste of the filling. That pie did not last a day as he just kept saying how good it was and eating piece after piece. It is so light and fluffy, not filling or heavy that I can see why he ate so much. I used the zest from both lemons as I wanted the bright lemon taste.

        Thanks so much for posting this, it is really very easy making and it is light and refreshing. No baking makes it easier and quicker and no hot kitchen.
        Heritic, rebel, a thing to flount,
        He drew a circle that shut me out.
        But love and I had the wit to win,
        We drew a circle that took him in.

          You're welcome. I believe the original recipe is from Betty Crocker or Pillsbury. It's amazing how such a simple recipe can be so good.
