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!

    • The whipped topping in the recipe (the Cool Whip style) is the kind that is already whipped. ‘It will NOT work the same with the kind you have to whip yourself.
