So I took these cookies:
and made this cheesecake (which the hubby and kids got into before I remembered to take a picture)
Heres what you need:
1 12oz tin of danish butter cookies
1 1/2 sticks of butter
2 8oz pkg cream cheese softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 8oz tub of creamy cool whip
zest of one lemon
juice of 1 1/2 lemons
To prepare crust melt 1 1/4 sticks of butter in sauce pan. In food processor pulse the cookies until they are crumbs and resemble sand. With 1/4 stick of butter grease the sides and bottoms of a 9 x 13 glass pan. When cookies are crumbled, pour melted butter into them and pulse until just combined. Press into bottom and just a little up the sides of pan.
To prepare filling: In large bowl, cream the cream cheese with a hand mixer or by hand. Add the zest of the lemon and mix well. Add the juice and mix well. Mix in the condensed milk. FOLD in the cool whip so it doesn't deflate. Pour onto crust and chill for at least one hour! Serve!!!!!
IT'S VERY VERY YUMMY!!!!!
