No Bake creamy cheesecake

With the holidays fast approaching sometimes you need a quick dessert to take to a holiday party or just for yourself ;)  (or maybe that is just at my house lol )...but anyway this is just the thing.  Quick, easy and yummy.  It only takes about 5 minutes from start to finish to pull this together.  You can make a homemade graham cracker crust or use a store bought crust one....up to you with how much time or ambition you have.  I usually serve this with canned cherry pie filling, but have used blueberry sometimes or apple equally delicious. I usually put the can of pie filling in the fridge to chill when I put the pie in there to firm up.   Use what toppings you like, I have also drizzled chocolate syrup on it instead of pie filling and it is yummy as well :)  enjoy

No Bake creamy cheesecake
1 8oz pkg cream cheese (I use 1/3 less fat kind), softened
1 cup sugar
1 t vanilla
1 small container of cool whip
1 graham cracker pie crust

Pie filling of your choice to top.

In bowl place softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla.  Mix well will electric mixer taking spatula and scraping down sides of bowl and remixing.  Add Cool whip and mix well, taking spatula and scraping down sides and up from the bottom mixing all well.  Place into prepared pie shell spreading evenly over crust.  Cover and place in fridge for a couple of hours to firm up (will still be soft and creamy).  Cut into wedges to serve and spoon some pie filling over the top.  Enjoy
