Tuesday Treats: Fluffy Easter Cheesecake

Easter is this Sunday. With the arrival of the hated Daylight Savings Time, days are getting longer and warmer and we’re all busy with family, friends, and our own stuff. This Easter Cheesecake recipe is quick and easy and so scrumptious you might want to forego using a fork and grab a spoon instead to get every last yummy bite.

Prep Time: 10 min.
Total Time: 3 hr. 10 min.
Servings: 8 servings.

Try a Fluffy 2-Step Easter Cheesecake in a graham cracker crust for a great springtime treat. Top this Easter cheesecake with jelly beans & you’re all set!

What You Need
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
1 ready-to-use graham cracker crumb crust (6 oz.)
16 jelly beans

Make It

Beat cream cheese and sugar in medium bowl with whisk until well blended. Stir in COOL WHIP. Spoon into crust.
Refrigerate 3 hours or until set. Top with jelly beans just before serving.

She stood there, hands fisted on her hips, chin jutting and everyone else ducking for cover. “Jeez,” she groused. “How hard is it to whisk a few ingredients up and dump them in a store-bought pie crust thingy. Wait. Do ground-up graham crackers count as pie crust? Never mind. It says it is on the package so…whatever. Wait a minute. This is a cheese cake. Wouldn’t that make it a cake crust? Do cakes have crusts? Whatever. Plus, I don’t have to bake it so it doesn’t get burned. Everyone frickin’ loves it. If they don’t, they know better than to come around and ask for a piece. And if I don’t have jelly beans, I use M&Ms or Hershey Kisses. Works just as good and nobody complains. If they do, they know to do it out of earshot.”

Yeah, that’s our irascible but loved Hannah Jackson McIntire. If you haven’t already but would like to, you can read about her romance with her Wolf shifter mate, Ian “Mac” McIntire, and their son, Liam, plus all the Moonstruck Wolves and their mates in MOONSTRUCK: SECRETS. It’s still on sale everywhere for $2.99. Grab it now before it goes up to $4.99 next month. Just click on the cover for the universal link to all the stores.

  1. Oh, yum. I do loves me some cheesecake. But with the new eating healthy thing, it’s flat out. I’ll just sit here and look at the picture of it. K?

    LOL, Hannah’s so much fun.

      But if you use sugar substitute and low-fat/no-fat cream cheese and Cool Whip, it’s fairly healthy so you could occasionally indulge. 😉

      And yes. Hannah is a hellava lot of fun! 😀
