Last Friday I was looking for creative projects to do for my sanity and I decided I was FINALLY up to whipping up this Cheesecake Pie!
As someone with multiple sclerosis and lupus, I’m always looking for creative ways to express myself because otherwise I’d explode into little pieces and no one would like to have to clean that up. Soooo, one of the ways I do that is to bake and make yummy desserts. And since it’s summer and intensely hot and sunny I really can only handle making desserts that don’t require baking. I whipped up this cheesecake pie thanks to an already made graham cracker crust, lactose free milk and a Jello Cheesecake mix. I got out my mixer and mixed away. I think I need to come up with more things to mix because I really enjoy doing it!
Anyway, as I mentioned before, I used lactose free milk and that’s because I found out I’m quite sensitive to dairy. I have also used soy milk in the past and think I will again next time. It still comes out with a great consistency and I think it tastes better! I have also been known to put chocolate chips in the cheesecake part and on top. I highly recommend doing so. It adds an even yummier flare!
So there you go! It was nice to be able to make something and use my hands. Perhaps soon I’ll actually feel up to making a REAL cheesecake. Hmmm….
