I’ve been making this recipe for years. It was one of my dad’s favorite desserts. He was very frugal when it came to grocery shopping, and I was surprised once when making our shopping list he asked what I needed to make this dessert again! The man never requested ANYTHING.
This recipe is a winner because it meets my “good n’ easy” criteria.
Simple No Bake Cheesecake
1 – 8oz cream cheese*, room temp
1 – small tub of whipped topping*, thawed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar OR sugar substitute such as Splenda
1 – 9-inch graham cracker crust
Fresh fruit for topping. Strawberries, blueberries, pineapple…whatever you like!
With hand mixer blend cream cheese, sugar substitute, and vanilla extract until creamy. Blend in whipped topping until smooth and light, try not to over blend. Spoon mixture into pie crust and chill in refrigerator for 3 hours or until set. Add fresh berries and serve!
*you can use reduced fat versions of cream cheese and whipped topping but fat free is not recommended.
