I am a firm believer that kids need to know their way around a kitchen, not only because it’s a necessary life skill, but also because it helps them to feel capable and that they can accomplish Things of Awesome. This dessert—Lemon Cheesecake Pie—is a delicious bit of yum that is easy to make but seems fancy – a great recipe for kids to have in their recipe box when they’re looking to impress. 😉

Kitchen Kids Lemon Cheesecake PieHow To Make Lemon Cheesecake Pie

First, make sure both the cream cheese and the Cool Whip are completely softened/thawed. If they aren’t, there will be “chunks” in this recipe.

When you’re ready to start, place the cream cheese and the sweetened condensed milk in a mixing bowl. Mix for a couple minutes until completely smooth.

There will probably be just a titch more than what will fit in the crust. The boys have never had a problem with this. It just means there is more to lick off the spoon. 😉

Let the pie set in the fridge at least two hours. When it is set, cut and serve. Have the kids jazz it up with some berries or extra whipped cream, if that’s their kind of thing.
