This recipe is so easy that even my husband can do it. And of course, I think just about everybody loves cheesecake. I know I do . . .

(His specialties are boxed mac-n-cheese, Ramen noodles and frozen pizza!)

Prep time: 20 minutes

Baking time: 55 minutes

2 packages of graham crackers (18 “cracker sheets”)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine

8 ounces of cream cheese (softened)
1 egg
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened, condensed milk
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 can (21 ounces) of blueberry or cherry pie filling

Crush the graham crackers (I put 4 or 5 “cracker sheets” at a time into a sturdy plastic freezer bag and crush them with a rolling pin). Put cracker crumbs into a medium-sized bowl and pour melted butter/margarine over the crumbs. Mix thoroughly. Press into a 9×13 ungreased pan.

Use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk until smooth (a minute or two). Add the lemon juice and egg and beat on high speed for another minute.

Pour the batter over the graham cracker crust. Drop the canned pie filling into the batter by spoonfuls at evenly-placed intervals.

Bake at 300 degrees for 55 minutes.

Allow to cool completely before cutting. Store in the refrigerator.
