The Secret to a Good Cheesecake is ....

....lots of work, patience, cream cheese, eggs and lots of calories.
So, Try my simpler still incredibly delicious solution!

Grandma's Cheesecake Pie
1. Beat 4oz of cream cheese (half of a package)  and 3/4 cup of sifted powdered sugar.
2. In a separate bowl, whip 1 cup (or half a pint) of whipping cream until it forms soft peaks
3. Fold the two bowls together with 1 teaspoon of vanilla.

Want to know how to use it?
- Fits an 8x8 pan, 8" pie plate or 12 cupcakes
- Try a graham cracker, oreo, pretzels or vanilla wafer crust
- Put sprinkles on it.
- Stir in some berries
- Drizzle chocolate or caramel on top. 
- Put it in the freezer for a frozen taste.
- Put some food coloring in for the holiday--

I made a batch in a cupcake pan. I had some heart print cupcake liners, that I put a whole Oreo in the bottom. I added a little red sprinkles on top so we had some for Valentines Days!

Try this topping: Berry Glaze Topping
mix 1/2 cup of sugar with 1/4 cup (4TBSP) of cornstarch in a pan. Puree 1 cup of berries and 1/2 cup of water.  Add water to make 1 2/3 cups. Stir on medium heat until it thickens and boils, add 2 cups of berries
