This weekend we celebrated a birthday and this was the request for “cake”.
Obviously this is not a fancy recipe but it is a house favorite and since it is so easy I am sharing with you!
This recipe is not healthy or natural (clearly I am not a salesperson)but it was the request of the birthday haver and I obliged.
It is a treat and that is what birthdays are all about. Yes?
You start off by whipping the cream cheese in a standing mixer or with beaters.
To that, you add sweetened condensed milk.
Lemon juice and vanilla.
You could get fancy if you like baking and make a homemade graham cracker crust but I took a helping hand from the Keebler elves.
After you have let it set up in the fridge, you just top with your favorite fruit topping.
The time I chose cherry. (i use Comstock brand).
Here’s to health and happiness through another year. Enjoy!
