Easy Cheesecake

8 in graham cracker crust
8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 c. lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in condensed milk.

Stir in lemon juice and vanilla. Pour into crust. Chill 3 hours or until set.

To make your own no bake crust:
10-12 crushed cookies/graham crackers (I used coconut cookies or butter waffle cookies here in Korea)
enough butter to hold crumbs together. 2-ish T

1. mix butter and crumbs together. I used my blender to crumb cookies, then added the butter in and mixed until I got a good "dough" for the crust.
2. Press crumb mixture into foil pie pan and press down, try to get some up on the sides
