The Famous Woolworth Ice Box Cheesecake

Woolworth’s Cheesecake

A while back, a family friend asked me if I had the recipe for Woolworth’s cheesecake.  I didn’t even remember that they had a cheesecake, so I surely didn’t have the recipe.  Anyhow, that of course provoked me to launch an internet search for the recipe.Now I can’t be certain if  this is the actual recipe… there are a lot of them out there, but this is the one I tried.  The first time I made it, I thought “wow… this is a LOT of dessert”… So invited some friends over and shared it with them.  I kind of regretted it afterwards because it was so amazing.  I especially like the graham cracker crust on this dessert, and I have since adopted this variation for every recipe I use that calls for a graham cracker crust.   It is simply wonderful.Now while this is called “cheesecake”… it’s really not.  Not by a long shot… but it is really, really delicious.  Light, refreshing, and addictive.  The only modifications I made to this recipe was to add an extra 8oz of cream cheese… I substituted lemon extract for the vanilla… and I added 2 TBSP of lemon juice.
