  • I love this cheesecake too! For a firmer cheesecake, you can also add cottage cheese to the mixture. Keep everything the same but put all mixture into a blender to puree. fold in the cold whipped evaporated milk when it has cooled so you won't lose volume. Let setup in the refrigerator. This recipe is also known as the blender cheesecake.

  • This is good; I made this several years ago when I lived in Chicagoback in the 60's. It's not a heavy cheesecake; more fluffy but oh so good.
