Easy lemon cheesecake pie: A retro recipe from the 1950s

"Lemon cheesecake pie appeals to menfolks and everybody"

Discovery! Lemon cheesecake pie

This is a brand-new dessert. It changes cheesecake making from a slow, complicated job to a quick and easy one!

Some cheesecake tends to be dry and grainy; this has a melt-in-the-mouth creaminess. Many cheesecakes require four eggs; this takes only one. Mixing time is brief, baking time only 35 minutes.

Best of all, lemon cheesecake pie appeals to menfolks and everybody — because it’s not too sweet, thanks to the tang of fresh Sunkist Lemons. Try it!
