MELT butter in small saucepan. Stir in cookie crumbs until well blended. Press crumbs onto bottom of ungreased 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes.

DISSOLVE unflavored gelatin in lemon juice in small bowl. Place evaporated and condensed milks, cream cheese and dissolved gelatin in blender; blend until smooth. Pour mixture over crust; refrigerate for 1 hour.

Great spring time dessert!

This is a great spring time dessert...after all the heavy, darker desserts of winter...don't get me wrong, it is by no means "Light", it just gives a nice "springy" presentation!!

Cheese, Gelatin and Fruit Pie

I had tried this recipe for Christmas and it didn't gel. I then tried it again for my church and purchased new unflavored gelatin. The recipe has a very good taste, but stating that it's a "pie" doesn't ring true to me. When I cut into it, it all squishes out the sides. I plan to use this recipe again, but use it in a trifle dish instead of a springform cake pan. The texture is more like a pudding to me than a "pie".

Sparkling dessert

This very pretty, very easy dessert gelatin was a big hit on our holiday buffet table. It serves quite a few people because it is very rich and refreshing. The positive comments have earned it a permanent place at our family get-togethers.
