“This is a wonderful easy dessert and if you chill it overnight it's similar to a very creamy cheese cake but much easier and much quicker to make, you can whip this up in about 5 minutes, the ingredients may be easily be doubled and baked in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan, see note on bottom --- serve this warm or cold, it will "ripen" in flavor have a cheesecake texture after it is chilled for 24 hours”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (oven rack set to lowest bottom position).
  2. Grease an 8 x 8-inch square baking dish.
  3. In the baking dish melt the butter inside the oven.
  4. Remove from oven; sprinkle the cracker crumbs in the melted butter, stir well; press on the bottom of the baking dish to form a crust.
  5. Bake the graham crust in a 350 degree oven for 7 minutes; remove and set aside.
  6. In a medium bowl, mix together the sweetened condensed milk, sour cream and lemon juice.
  7. Spread evenly over the crumb/crust.
  8. Spoon the pie filling evenly over the cream layer (don't worry if it sinks a bit, it will all bake together).
  9. Bake on lowest oven rack for 25-30 minutes, or until set (don't over bake).
  10. Serve warm or chill overnight (this will firm up and develop in flavor if left in the refrigerator overnight).
  11. ** This dessert is very good so you might want to consider doubling it -- this can be easily doubled and baked in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan, double the canned pie filling too and bake it for just a couple minutes longer.
