This is a wonderful and simple recipe. However, for a firmer filling, reduce lemon juice to 1/3 cup and beat the cream cheese while still firm (do not soften). This is the way I have prepared this recipe for years and it turns out beautifully and delicious every time.

This recipe has also been in my family for years....My mom always told me to put the cheese pie in the oven for 15-20min. at 350. And you will have a perfect slice every time. I promise:) It doesn't even matter if you like 1/3 of a cup lemon juice or 1/2 of a cup. Low fat cream cheese or fat free sweetned cond. milk it will set perfectly if you pop it in the oven for a few.

I think the problem with the bad feedback on this is because it says 14 ounces of condensed sweetened milk and it should read 8 ounces. One small can to each 8 ounce block of cheese. I used 3 cheese to 2 milk and beat it until it was fluffy and it was delicious. The extra cheese helps to take away the excessive sweetness. I backed off a little on the lemon juice too. About 2/3 of what it calls for even though I added the extra cheese. Also, the cheese should stay cool to get a fluffier pie. I took it to a dinner last night and it was a big hit.
