Knox gelatine NO BAKE CHEESE CAKE

I envelope knox gelatine
2 - 8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup boiling water
1 teas. vanilla
1 - 9" prepared graham cracker crust

In a bowl dissolve sugar and gelatine in one cup boiling water,I use a whisk to stir,about 5 min or until sugar and gelatine are completely dissolved
In another bowl beat cream cheese and vanilla until softened,slowly beat in gelatin mixture until completely mixed well,pour into prepared crust and chill for 4 or more hrs. I always make two of these because my family really enjoys them just double the ingredients and pour into two prepared pie crusts.I top the cheese cakes with either cherry or blueberry pie filling,one can is plenty for two cheese cakes.I love this recipe because you don't have to heat up the house with the oven.

Gale, I always do beets using this method.  I used to cook and slice the beets; but it works just as well with the canned one.  I go to GFS and get a BIG can of beets and use 18 eggs.  I guess you can tell we are lovers of beets and pickled eggs.  I didn't realize this was the Amish way to do beets.  I read Amish novels all the time, but I have never seen this recipe in any of the books that I have read so far.  I am in the middle of one right now.  I love to read!

Hi Darla,whenever we go to Walnut Creek we eat at The Der Dutchman restaurant and they serve these and mustard eggs on their salad bar.I have to check out GFS for the beets. I always make 18 eggs too! Most people don't but I love them and so does hubby,he doesn't care for the beets just the eggs.Ever since we have been married almost 33 years now these have been a part of our Easter meal.Reading is a wonderful thing you can go anywhere and never leave your house.

Nancy,this is pretty much like mine.I use (That dirty word) lol !  MAYO,apple cider vinegar,sugar,salt and pepper.in a little different proportions.Pretty much the same dressing for potato salad and macaroni salad too.I do like the dressing for the Amish Potato salad I might start using that all the time.It tastes good and it will help to stretch the mayo a little,it's over $4 a jar here for Hellmans.It's all good!

I don't really have a favorite Easter recipe, but my daughter in law makes a great "lamby" cake with a pound cake with a lime glaze.  The recipe is too much for her lamb cake mold, so she makes some smaller "bunny" cakes with the left overs.  We usually get a couple to take home to have with sliced strawberries.  I've tried making her recipe, but somehow she has a special touch.  At least we get to enjoy her creations!

At the church dinner the lady in charge of such things will bring roasted turkeys and ham plus a lot of mashed potatoes.  We other women will supply everything else.  There are always too many desserts so I'm not taking cookies - just my broccoli salad and I've decided on some of my imitation Wink baked beans.

This is like the recipe I have used for over 40 years but I do not add the salt, I do at least 9 eggs, but if I do more, we make deviled eggs (the color is nice for Easter & it is a change of taste )
