Shirley's No-Bake Cheesecake (Aka Cheese Pie)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Karen..

I searched for a cheesecake like this one and couldn't duplicate it. This recipe is from my ex-mother-in-law, who has passed on. My children miss her very much (and her cooking). They have since gotten some of her recipes from their father's family, so I can make them at home. It's a way for them to remember their grandmother plus she was quite a baker.

This is really good! My mother used to make this 30-40 years ago, and I still make it today. To dress it up I often top it with a good quality fruit pie filling - like cherry or blueberry.
