Jell-O cheesecake boxed mix, I can't believe I'm considering this....

I will periodically go through the pantry and cabinets here at the house, inventoring what we have. For several weeks, we've had a graham pie crust in the pantry. A week ago I noticed that had some JellO instant cheesecake mix. I might, just MIGHT, go ahead and mix it up, let it set up, and top it with some fruit, just to get rid of it. Maybe as a surprise for PeppA when she gets back tomorrow.

I take pride in the fact that excepting a few convience products, I'm almost completely a "from scratch" type person. What I'm considering just feels like blasphemy.

Go ahead and make it. You'll have something sweet to eat and then you'll have gotten rid of the evidence of a packaged product in your pantry.

It will be tasty and a pleasant way to end a meal. Do it and destroy the evidence. No one will ever know.

Here's the key: Don't analyze it and compare it to your scratch cheesecake.

That's the kind my mother used to make and then she topped it with canned cherry pie filling

I love cheesecake. My favorite. I have made the one in the box before, but usually make it from scratch. Starts with 3 lbs of Cream Cheese. Think it is fattening enough?

Couldn't agree more! For the little amount of work required, they really aren't bad! We always keep one on hand for "drop-ins"
