  1. Sounds good. but what size milk? I assume you are talking about evaporated milk? or do you mean sweetened condensed milk?? thanks.

  2. It has been a few months and you still have not fixed the recipe to show the size of milk can. Where I live you can get the Carnation milk in 2 sizes.

    • Sorry, there has just been so many things going on here. It is the 12oz. can. We have changed the recipe to show this now.

      • Thank you for the reply and fixing the recipe to include the amount of milk. I am going to make this tonight! Can not wait to try it! Thank you again.

  3. I made this dessert last night and I LOVE it! It does taste like Woolworth’s! It is so wonderfully light and fluffy and lemony. Thank you for a great recipe ♥

  4. I have fond memories of Christmas shopping with my mother. We would reward ourselves with a piece of Woolworth’s cheesecake. We had so much fun!
