Since no meals contain meat, you can make a dairy dessert with your kids. This no-bake cheesecake is perfect since it doesn’t heat up the kitchen (a big plus these days!), doesn’t require any dangerous kitchen tools – and best of all, tastes great!
1 store-bought graham cracker pie crust (I told you it was easy!)
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese (I find it easier to use whipped cream cheese)
½ cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping (like Cool Whip), thawed
Garnish: fresh fruit of your choice
In a large mixing bowl, beat together cream cheese, sugar, sour cream and vanilla. Fold in the whipped topping and mix well. Pour into crust.
Refrigerate for 5 hours. Garnish with fresh fruit, if desired, and serve.
Variation: Kids can also garnish with chocolate syrup, chocolate candies or any other treats they prefer!
