Sharon's Cheese Cake


This recipe for a Cherry Cheese Cake came from a friend of mine. It is not a cooked cheese cake. I love it. You can put whatever fruit you like on top. I like the cherry the best.

Sharon's Cheese Cake

Base:

1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup sugar

Mix all ingredients together. Reserve about 1/4 cup to sprinkle on top. With the remaining press into 9 X 13 baking pan. Set aside.

Filling:

1 large cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1 pkg. dream whip, made according to directions
(I use cool whip small container or about 1/2 a large one.)
I can cherry pie fill

Directions:

Cream 1/4 cup sugar and cream cheese together until smooth. If you use dream whip, prepare as directed and fold into cream cheese mixture. With the cool whip you also will fold into cheese mixture. I have made it both ways and like both. Then top with cherry pie fill and sprinkle with reserved crumb crust. Set in frig to chill and serve. This is a very nice summer dessert.

Yummy, I like the idea of using Cool Whip rather than Dream Whip.
