Kyle Burnett’s No Bake Lemon Cheesecake is a Carolina Eats Sweepstakes finalist
Kyle Burnett of Chesnee keeps a zip lock bag filled with his grandmother’s recipes. And it’s her No Bake Lemon Cheesecake with Fruit Topping that he submitted for the Carolina Eats Holiday Homestyle Recipe Sweepstakes presented by Ingles.
Both of his grandmothers taught him to cook, said Burnett, who works in the business office at Spartanburg Community College.
“I had allergies as a child and couldn’t go outside, so they taught me to cook to keep me busy,” he said.
Today, Burnett enjoys cooking and finds it to be a stress reliever.
For those looking for an easy, stress free and delicious dessert this holiday season, here is the recipe Burnett’s grandmother called cherry cheese pie.
