In a mixing bowl, mix 370g cream cheese,(must be at room temperature, to get most of the lumps out). Then add 400g tin of sweetened condensed milk, 250ml thickened cream and last 1/3 cup lemon or lime juice, the reaction of the citrus juice will start to set your mixture almost immediately. On the low speed of your hand mixer, blend well until all ingredients are incorporated. Immediately pour mixture into pre-prepared crust. Refrigerate for 1 – 1 ½ hours.
For the crust take 250g of your favourite plain biscuits and crush well. Stir in 125g of melted butter and press into the base of a lined spring-form tin.
1 package Jell-o Gelatin, 4 serving size-color of your choice
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
extra sugar for rolling
Coat a Loaf pan with cooking spray. You can also use an 8x8 pan, gumdrops will be thinner. Place pan in refrigerator until ready to use.
Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pan, let sit for 1 minute. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly Once you reach a steady boil, continue to boil for 1 full minute. Pour into chilled pan and return to refrigerator for 3-4 hours.
Once gelatin is set, run knife around edges to loosen. Using a spatula, remove gumdrop slab to wax paper and cut into desired shapes using a sharp knife. If knife starts to get sticky, run under hot water. Transfer cut gumdrops to a tray lined with fresh wax paper to dry at room temperature for at least 10 hours, preferably overnight. I placed my tray in the cold oven to dry. Roll gumdrops in granulated sugar and store in airtight container.
GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE; COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN; AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.
LIVING ONE DAY AT A TIME; ENJOYING ONE MOMENT AT A TIME; ACCEPTING HARDSHIPS AS THE PATHWAY TO PEACE; TAKING, AS HE DID, THIS SINFUL WORLD AS IT IS, NOT AS I WOULD HAVE IT; TRUSTING THAT HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS RIGHT IF I SURRENDER TO HIS WILL; THAT I MAY BE REASONABLY HAPPY IN THIS LIFE AND SUPREMELY HAPPY WITH HIM FOREVER IN THE NEXT. AMEN.
