Lemon Apple Cheesecake

"I love to find things that don't have to be baked and are still delicious. This was given to me by my sister in law many (oh-so-many) years ago. You'll need a 7 or 8 inch spring form pan. This delicious dessert has a texture more like custard then cheesecake. Time does not inclued chilling. Note: The 1 2/3 cups of evaporated milk is slightly more then a 12oz can. I just added regular milk to bring it to 1 2/3."

    I added this cheesecake-y dessert to my cheesecake cookbook because of its wonderful flavors and delicious taste. The day after I made this I found out CoolMonday had just passed away. This and all her recipes are a wonderful addition to anyone's cookbook.

    This makes a lovely light summer dessert, not nearly as heavy as a usual cheesecake. I made half of the recipe in a deep 16 cm pan with a removable bottom. I decided to make a small cake because there were only two diners, but am now regretting that I didn't make a larger one. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.


Sadly, CoolMonday passed away on November 16, 2007. She will be missed by her many friends at Recipezaar; and we're grateful for the fond memories we have. <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Animation1.gif" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"><img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/4treasurehunt.gif" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/berriesblinkie.gif" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> I'm the number one gramma of Rusty, Michael and Nikki. I know that because they told me so... hehehe...I live in the eternal city of lights, Las Vegas, Nevada. I stopped working about 3 years ago when I had some personal situations requiring my attention. I do love pizza, especially cold for breakfast the next day.. Since I discovered Zaar, I now prepare a large family meal once a month and I enjoy saving recipes and passing them on to my daughter. Most of the dishes are from Recipezaar.. so thank you very much. I have a good housekeeping cookbook that's about 40 years old and I love it... I have recipes I have saved over the years and have posted some of them. My pet peeve???? hmmmm that would have to be rude or inconsiderate people. Another pet peeve is people who "tell it like it is".
