I want to try the recipe for lemon cheesecake pie that was on the
ROYAL instant lemon pudding box years ago. Can you pl. help me?
Hello Mary Jo,
Sorry, I was unable to find a recipe for this or any mention of this recipe.
I'll post this is hopes that one of my readers is familiar with it.
Hello Mary Jo,
I had some spare time today, so I thought I'd have another go at finding your Royal lemon cheesecake pie recipe.
I still had no success finding a recipe with that name from the Royal box or even calling for Royal Instant Lemon Pudding by name. However, I came across an old Royal newspaper ad that had a recipe for "Royal Layered Lemon Cream Dessert". I don't think it is the recipe that you want, but it is similar to a cheesecake, so I thought you might like to have it. See below.
Royal Layered Lemon Cream Dessert
1/2 cup (Blue Bonnet) Margarine
22 each (Honey Maid) Graham Crackers, finely rolled (about 1 1/2 cups of crumbs)
(make some extra and set aside)
1 (2-3/4 oz)bag (Planters) Walnut Pieces, chopped
1 (8-oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons milk
1 (8-oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 (3-3/4 oz) pkgs Royal Instant Lemon Pudding & Pie Filling
3 cups milk
1. Make Crust: Set oven at 350°F. In warming oven, in 9x13-inch baking pan,
melt margarine, stir in graham cracker crumbs and walnuts until well combined.
Set aside 1 tablespoon for garnish; evenly press remaining crumbs over bottom
of pan; bake 5 minutes; cool.
2. Make Filling: In medium bowl, with electric mixer at high speed, beat cream
cheese and 2 tablespoons milk until light and fluffy; fold in 1/2 whipped topping.
Spread evenly over cooled crust.
3. In medium bowl, with electric mixer at low speed, prepare Royal Instant Lemon
Pudding and Pie Filling according to package directions, using 3 cups milk; evenly
spread over whipped cream mixture. Top with remaining whipped topping; sprinkle
with reserved crumbs. Chill 4 to 8 hours. Makes 12 servings.
