      I have not tried this yet, although I have been searching for the Woolworth's Cheesecake recipe for a while now. I found one on the Milnot website. Milnot is the "milk" ingredient used in the original Woolworth cheesecake, according to what I have read elsewhere. I'll ry this one, but I am not sure what a can of Carnation Instant Milk is. Isn't Instant Milk the dry powdered milk? Does Carnation put this into cans? Should this really read Carnation Evaporated Milk or Carnation Condensed Milk. I am not up on the types of Canned Milk out there. If there is a Carnation Instant Milk in a can, I will use that as a substitute for Milnot, which can be difficult to find. I made it with Milnot and it was excellent, just like the Woolworth's fluffy cheesecake I enjoyed as a child. I prefer this fluffy cheesecake to the dense, thick ones. I hope someone can clarify the "Carnation Instant Milk" ingredient shown here. Thank you in advance.

      While in high school, I used to work at the Woolworth's lunch counter as a short-order cook. This cheesecake made it worth the while! It is not a dense cheesecake. It is light and delicious. Here's a tip.. after adding the Jell-o, beat EXTRA well. This will make for a higher "rise" and make it fluffier. Buen provecho!

      This is a stroll down memeory lane. Woolworth's was the first cheesecake I ever tasted as a child and I still consider it the best. Light and fluffy, not a dense cheesecake like we are used to now. Loved it. I made it almost exactly as the recipe stated, only adding a 1/2 tsp. vanilla. I plan to make it again for Easter!! Thanks for sharing.
