Fluffy White Cheesecake
1 package graham crackers
3-4 TBSP melted butter
3 TBSP sugar
2 (8 oz.) pkgs cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 small container whipped topping
Crush graham crackers in ziploc bag with rolling pin. Add sugar, then melted butter. (Leave in bag. Seal after sugar and butter are added, then knead with hands to blend.)
Press crust into bottom of 9x9 pan. (Add more butter for a more solid crust.)
Whip cream cheese with mixer until smooth. Add sugar and mix until blended.
Fold in whipped topping. Pour over graham crust.
Allow to refrigerate overnight and serve with fresh fruit or pie filling.
Comments from the cook: This recipe is one that my mom has been making for as long as I can remember! It's super easy, and is always a crowd pleaser.
When I made it this time, the crust was a bit more crumbly than I usually prefer, so next time I'll add a bit more melted butter. I have also added more whipped topping in the past, and stretched it to a 9x13 pan.
My favorite topping is cherry pie filling, but Brian likes fresh strawberries best. He won this time. :)
