Simple and Delicious!

This recipe has been in my family for quite a long time. I do not know where it originated but I do know that it is a family favorite!
We call it a cheesecake pie, because it tastes like cheesecake but looks like pie.
I have made both a regular version and a "lite" version and both taste very good!
The flavor can be varied by using different pie fillings or fresh fruits as toppings.
My personal favorite toppings are cherry pie filling or fresh raspberries in season.

I hope you enjoy this easy to make culinary delight as much as I do!


Ingredients

  • 2--8 oz packages Cream Cheese, (regular or lite)
  • 2/3 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup-8oz Sour Cream, regular or lite--( or Yogurt-plain or fruit filled)
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 8 oz. Container Whipped Topping, ( like Cool Whip--regular or lite)
  • 10 oz. (large) Graham Cracker Crust, (bought or made)
  • Canned or Fresh Fruit Topping

Enjoy a Slice!

DzyMsLizzy and Anamika thanks for visiting. Do try it and you will like it! Using a fruit yogurt instead of the sour cream does change the flavor too. I recently made a strawberry pie with strawberry yogurt instead of sour cream and topped it with fresh strawberries for my son-in-law's birthday. He is a cheesecake lover and he loved it! Next I will be trying a blueberry one for my daughter's birthday as she is a blueberry lover.
