This is my mom's recipe. It is a family requested recipe that she usually makes for Christmas. She's even added green food coloring to the cool whip to give it the festive look.

If your going to use this recipe you had better add sugar to the crust other wise it will stay crumbly and will be impossible to spread the cream cheese mixture. I found this out the hard way
