  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Dissolve strawberry gelatin in boiling water in a bowl; cool in refrigerator until thick, but not set, about 20 minutes.
  2. Beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until smooth.
  3. Beat evaporated milk in a separate bowl with an electric mixer until whipped and thick. Gradually pour strawberry gelatin mixture into evaporated milk, beating constantly. Fold cream cheese mixture into gelatin-milk mixture to form cheesecake filling.
  4. Set graham cracker crust on a baking sheet or plate to maintain stability. Pour cheesecake filling into crust. Refrigerate until cake is set, at least 3 1/2 hours.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • The original recipe said to stir the evaporated milk until it formed thick peaks. Mine never formed any peaks, so I finally stopped mixing and continued with the recipe. It worked just fine.

My mom has been making this cheesecake for years, but uses lemon jello instead of strawberry and it is delicious.

Thanks! This was easy to make and pretty cheap. I reduced the filling by 25% and it fit my pie crust perfectly. I used splenda instead of sugar and fat free evaporated milk.

I have made this recipe using different flavors of jello to go with same flavored fruit; raspberry jello topped with fresh raspberries, etc. This recipe is quick and easy and pretty much fool pr...

Mine turned out great, even though I kind of winged the recipe. My evaporated milk wasn't cold and I mixed in the gelatin when it was warm (not hot) and it turned out fine. I made it with a grah...

I will definitely make it again.The milk does have to be cold. Very easy to make.
