Dessert...the Most Important Part of a Thanksgiving Meal!

Today I am making desserts for our Thanksgiving feast tomorrow.  I am bringing pumpkin bars and a cherry cheesecake to my in-laws.  Thought I'd share my cheesecake recipe.  It's always a favorite (and, ssh, so easy!).  Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Cherry Cheesecake (No Bake)

Graham cracker crust
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/3 c. sugar
2 t. vanilla
8 oz. Cool Whip
Can of cherry pie filling (or other desired topping)

Beat softened cream cheese with a mixer and gradually add in sugar until well mixed.  Add vanilla and beat until smooth and mixed in.  Fold in Cool Whip.  Spoon into pie crust and refrigerate until firm.  Spoon cherries on top.  Enjoy!
