Preparation / Directions:
Boil 1/4 cup water in a pan, or in a glass measuring cup in the microwave.
Sprinkle gelatin on water. Wait 2 minutes, then stir to dissolve. Add 3/4 cup of water to make a full cup of water/gelatin.
In a blender, or in a bowl with an electric mixer, combine the water/gelatin, the cream cheese, vanilla, lemon juice and sweetener. Mix thoroughly.
Spray an 8" or 9" pie pan. Pour mixture in pan. Allow to set in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving. Serves 8.
TOPPING: (This is my mom Sophie's recipe for pie filling):
3 cups berries (not strawberries) 5 - 10 packets of Equal Sweetener or 1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar 1 tablespoon of thickener (flour, or arrowroot, or corn or potato starch) 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
Put 1/2 of berries in a small pot (or microwave safe dish). Mix in thickener. Heat to a boil, stirring.
Add sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice. Don't add Equal at this time. Stir as it cooks and thickens. Turn off heat. Add Equal, if you are using it.
Stir in remainder of berries. Do not cook further. Refrigerate if you like it cool, or use immediately if you want the berries warm.
Spoon over cheesecake..
2 - 8 ounce packages of no fat creamcheese 1 package of Jello any flavor, sugar free or regular 1 teaspoon vanilla
Dissolve Jello into a cup of hot water. Stir for 2 minutes. Add a cup of cold water. Stir (this is the usual recipe for making Jello). With electric beaters or blender, combine this warm jello with the cream cheese and vanilla. Spray a pie plate and pour mixture in. Allow 4 hours to
