No Bake Woolworth Cheesecake is a classic, light and lemony dessert and will be the perfect addition to your Easter or Mother’s Day menu!
I love those recipes that we all grew up with, they are just too good to miss out on.
A while back, a family friend asked me if I had the recipe for Woolworth’s cheesecake. I didn’t even remember that anybody even told me they had a cheesecake, so I surely didn’t have the recipe. Anyway, that of course provoked me to launch an internet search for the recipe. Now I can’t be certain if this is the actual recipe… there are a lot of them out there, but this is the one I tried.
The first time I made it, I thought “wow… this is a LOT of dessert”… So invited some friends over and shared it with them.
I kind of regretted it afterwards…..
Well, because it was so amazing.
Now while this is called “cheesecake”… it’s really not. Not by a long shot…
I would rename it “Lemon Fluff Dessert” or “Lemon Fluff Ice Box” something, but it is really, really delicious. And for lemon lovers who are looking for light (not in calories, but in filling) dessert for a spring get-together, this is it!
