No Bake Cherry Dreamwhip Cheesecake

250  grams(1 pkg) cream cheese        2 pkg dreamwhip
1 cup graham cracker crumbs           1 can cherry pie filling
2 tblsps white sugar                  1/4 cup melted butter

     Grease a springform pan(or you can use cake pans)up the
sides and bottom of the pan. Combine graham cracker crumbs,
butter and sugar;mix well. Press into pan and put into freezer.

      Whip the 2 pkgs of dream whip according to the directions
on the package. Set aside in the fridge for awhile.

      Cream the cream cheese until smooth and soft,then add
half the dreamwhip mixture. With a mixer blend until smooth
and creamy. Pour into crumb mixture.

       Put cherry pie filling on top of cream cheese mixture.

       With the remaining dream whip,spread on top of pie
filling mixture. Cover with aluminum foil and place in freezer
for 24 hours. Then it will be ready to serve. Allow 2 hours
to thaw before serving.

       Keep refrigerated once used,it can keep for several 
weeks in freezer. You can substitute other pie fillings in 
place of the cherry. Blueberry pie filling works really well
too. I sometimes use a light pie filling in the recipe and
it doesn't change the taste too much because its fairly 
sweet because of the dreamwhip. Enjoy
