Preparation
1

Chill the evaporated milk, mixing bowl and beaters in a refrigerator for a minimum of 8 hours.
These items being very cold is essential to getting good loft in the cheesecake.

Crust
2

Melt the butter and combine with graham cracker crumbs.

3

Using a spoon or firm spatula, evenly press the graham crackers onto the bottom and sides of an non-greased pan.
Thicker corners strengthen the crust, making removal from the pan easier.
Save about 1/2 ounce of the crumbs to sprinkle on top of the cheesecake.

4

Place the crust in the refrigerator to set.

Filling
5

Heat the water to a boil, then add the instant gelatin. Stir until dissolved. Set aside to allow cooling.
The gelatin mix needs to be about room temperature.

6

In a bowl (not the chilled bowl and beaters), beat sugar, cream cheese and vanilla until smooth with no grit (Typically 5-10 minutes). Set aside.

7

Pour the cold evaporated milk into the chilled bowl and beat on high with the chilled beaters until soft peaks form. The milk will nearly double in volume.

8

Mix the gelatin and cream cheese into the evaporated milk on low speed.
It helps to alternative between portions of each as they are mixed in.

9

Pour the mixture into the prepared crust and sprinkle the remaining graham cracker crumbs on top.
Return to the refrigerator until firm. (Typically 4-6 hours)
