Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, condensed milk, lemon juice, and vanilla extract.
  2. With an electric mixer, beat on low setting for 1 1/2 minutes, or until large chunks are broken up. Then beat on high setting for 3 minutes, or until chunks are eliminated.
  3. See the pictures on the right to get an idea of what the filling should look like when you're done mixing. It's should be thick and fluffy. When it's done, pour it into your pie crust.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. The longer it's in the fridge, the better it will turn out! Not enough time in the fridge may lead to the filling being a bit runny. It won't remain in shape when you cut a slice. I usually leave mine in the fridge for a couple of hours just to be safe.

Tip:

This pie goes great with cherry and strawberry flavors! Add some fresh strawberries or cherries to liven it up.

Feel free to play with this recipe! Some people like a little more lemon flavor. In that case, use 1/3 cup of lemon juice instead of 1/4. If you like the vanilla flavor more, though, use one tablespoon of vanilla extract instead of 2 teaspoons.

      Media Solutions,

      It's so good with cherry topping! Someone recently suggested that I try adding a cherry jel-o topping. I think I might try that and add it to this hub if it's any good. Enjoy your pie!

      It looks good. I just bought the ingredients, and plan to make it tonight! The only variation is that I'm going to add cherry topping.
