Some Saturdays I putter around in the kitchen for most of the day, alternating between cooking, laundry, and cleaning chores in preparation for Sunday. I love these Saturdays at home since I am at work Monday through Friday. Some Saturdays (such as this past Saturday) I have an outside obligation which means I need to streamline my cooking for Sunday. This means I need to pull out some recipes which go together quickly. The following is such a recipe.
If you need a quick, easy dessert, this is the one for you. It can be made with light cream cheese and light whipped topping if you desire. It takes just five ingredients.
1 prepared graham cracker crust
1/2 cup powdered sugar
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. cool whip, thawed
Fruit topping of your choice
Cream together the cream cheese and the powdered sugar. Add the cool whip and combine thoroughly. Put in the pie shell. Chill for several hours or overnight. Top with fresh fruit or canned pie filling, if desired.

Topped with blueberry pie filling:
