Lemon Pineapple Cheesecake
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
1-1/2 cups graham wafer crumbs
1 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 pkg. (85 g. each) lemon jelly powder
2 tubs (15 oz. each) ricotta cheese
1 cup sugar
1 envelope dessert topping mix
1 can (19 oz.) crushed pineapple, drained
Combine crumbs, 1 tablespoon sugar and butter. Sprinkle 3/4 of mixture into the bottom of a 13 x 9-in. pan. Chill. Dissolve jelly powder in 2 cups boiling water. Cool to room temperature. In a large bowl, beat cheese and sugar until smooth. Gradually beat in cooled jelly. Prepare dessert topping mix according to package directions and then beat into cheese mixture. Pour half over crumbs. Spoon pineapple over this layer in an even layer. Add remaining cheese mixture. Sprinkle with remaining crumbs and refrigerate for 5 hours or overnight.
Variations: Other flavors of jelly powder can be used with assorted fresh fruit. Also can be prepared in a 10-in. springform pan.
