Quick no-bake cheesecake

Fluffy Cheesecake
  • 16 ounces cream cheese, softened at room temperature (I like Neufchatel)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 8 oz. container whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1 graham cracker pie crust (I like making one with Nilla Wafers)
  1. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Gently fold in whipped topping. Spoon into crust. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until set.
  2. Cover with any toppings you desire or eat plain.
I don't know how I haven't posted this recipe yet, since this is one of my favorite desserts. I love cheesecake that is baked, but this no-bake cheesecake is rave-worthy as well.
