Susan Morasca, Cayucos, California, remembers a childhood treat her family called Lemon Chiffon Pie. It was like a cheesecake, but lighter in consistency, almost “bubbly,” with a graham cracker crust. It wasn’t baked, and Susan thinks it contained lemon gelatin or lemon pudding along with sour cream or cream cheese.

Several readers sent in recipes for the classic cheesecake served at Woolworth’s in years gone by. This one’s from The Commercial Appeal newspaper in Memphis, Tennessee.
