I have literally tried 48 cheese cake recipes until I found this one in Readers Digest about 14 yrs ago. It's so easy you won't believe it, yet it is so good.


  1. With electric mixer, beat Cream Cheese with a splash of whipping cream to help loosen.
  2. Add powdered sugar& vanilla.
  3. Beat till well blended.
  4. Add heavy whipping cream and beat until smooth and thickened.
  5. Pour into pie shell and refrigerate until firm, 8-10 hours or overnight.
  6. Serve plain or with canned fruit pie filling.

Consistency was too soft. Great if you don't mind Cheese Cake Soup.
