  1. Howdy,
    Sounds like a great recipe? I think you accidently forgot to mention where you add the lemon juice? Can’t wait to try the recipe!

    Warmly,
    Nancy

    1. My best guess is it goes in the cream cheese mix – I’ve seen no bake cheesecake recipes that add lemon juice to the cream cheese mixture, and this recipe seems very similar…I could be wrong, but without knowing for sure, that’s where I’ll add it when I try making this!

  2. Let’s play a game called where does the lemon juice go?
    I’m thinking onto the strawberries?

    At any rate, this looks like a great recipe and I don’t think it would hurt to omit the lemon juice.
