It's no surprise we love desserts and sweets in this house! When we were in Lincoln over New Years my Mom made this great Cheesecake. It's super easy too! Carter has been begging (seriously) me to make "cheese pie" ever since we came home. So today I had him help me make it after lunch! Can't wait to have a piece.
Here's the recipe for your enjoyment:

No Bake Lite Cheesecake

Mix one Cup Graham Cracker crumbs (I use Keebler) with 3 Tbsp. melted Butter and 2 Tbsp. Sugar or Splenda.
Pat down crumbs in 9 x 13 pan.

2 - 12 oz Lite Cool Whip
2 - 8 oz Fat Free Cream Cheese
2/3 C. Sugar or Splenda

Mix softened cream cheese with sugar. Fold in cool whip.
Pour filling onto crumbs and refrigerate for a couple hours.
Top each piece with your favorite lite canned fruit! We love Lite Cherry Pie filling!

- If you don't have graham cracker crumbs you can use one sleeve of regular graham crackers to crush.
- I use lite and fat free ingredients for our cheesecake, but if you prefer it regular, by all means use regular ingredients!
- This cheesecake is not the "normal" consistency of let 's say Cheesecake Factory cheesecake.. it's light and fluffy!
Sorry no pictures...we haven't dug into it yet!
