No Bake Flag Cheesecake

Calling all cheesecake lovers!!!  So here’s an early recipe for the 4th of July!  If you love cheesecake, you’ll love this one! Plus, it’s a no bake one, so you won’t have to heat up your kitchen in the summer months to make this one! This is always a hit for any patriotic party – and you can switch out the berries and add seasonal fruit – either way, you’ll love this cheesecake!

Ingredients:              
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) low-fat cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla (I use pure vanilla but you can use vanilla extract)
2 cups thawed low-fat cool whip
1 low-fat Graham Pie Crust (6 oz.)  
2 cups fresh strawberries, halved  or raspberries
1/3 cup blueberries (berries can be switched or omitted)

Directions:
1.     Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until well blended, then  wisk in the cool whip.
2.    Spoon into crust ( you will be tempted to lick the spoon, go ahead..its so yummy)
3.    Place in refrigerator for 3 hours or until set. 
4.    Arrange berries on cheesecake to resemble a flag (if you’re doing this for the 4th)
5.    ENJOY!!!  And pretend that you slaved all day in the kitchen for this one!
