Many ( and I DO mean many ) years ago I made a very quick cheese cake tart.............that everyone raved about and then I promptly lost the recipe.
All I could remember was that it was on a package of Dream Whip - which is similar to Cool Whip.
So for a long time I would buy countless packages of Dream Whip hoping to find it.
Then I started cheating and actually opening the packages in the grocery store ( heart pounding in case I got caught ).
But - like I said - that was many years ago.
I thought of it the other day - wistfully - and then it dawned on me - HOLY COW - I CAN JUST GOOGLE THE RECIPE !!!!!!!!!
And so I did.
And then I thought well I could just share this.
And so I will.
This is ridiculously easy and ridiculously delicious -
1 cup of Cool Whip
1 package of cream cheese ( softened )
1/3 cup of sugar
Ready made Graham Crust pie shell or 6 mini pie shells - I chose the mini shells because otherwise I'd eat half the pie in one sitting ( true that )
Strawberries ( or blueberries or cherries - the one I made all those years ago was covered in 4 or 5 types of fruit )
Start with the first 2 ingredients - cheese and sugar
Beat cheese and sugar until smooth ( it doesn't matter who's wrong or right just beat it )
Next you fold in your cup of Cool Whip and fill your shell ( s )
Place in the fridge for 3 to 4 hours to set
I only serve the toppings when I serve the shell so that nothing gets mushy and in this case I used strawberries sliced thin ( with a tsp of sugar in the bowl )
and voila - the EASIEST mini cheese cake tart you'll ever make - and one of the most delicious - I promise !!!
Don't mind the pink hot lips and the heart candy - this was our Valentine's day dessert !
I bought a bottle of " coulis " and then forgot I had it - but it's pretty all on it's own, right?
There's 2 left in the fridge right now.............guess what I'm going to have for breakfast with a cup of tea?
Hey - I had a root canal yesterday - I've earned it !
AND WHO SAID YOU CAN'T HAVE A MINI CHEESE CAKE TART FOR BREAKFAST?
I WANT TO SEE THAT RULE BOOK! ( please )
We're waiting for a plumber to arrive because nothing says coldest day in the winter like a burst pipe
