I make this pretty often, I love it becaue you can change it up so many diff ways ...
Here is the basic recipe:
2 pkg.  (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese, softened ( I usually use low fat, not fat free)
1/3 cup sugar
2 cups  thawed COOL WHIP ( I usually use light)
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla     
BEAT cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping.
This will fill a 9 inch pie crust  or double will fill a 9 by 13 pan.

Now for the fun part....  SO many ways to change up & add toppings.

Add almost any flavor extract in place of vanilla.
add citrus zest  or chopped fruit in the batter  or arrange slices of fruit on top.
Chop a couple of your favorite candy bars & and sprinkle over top  OR nuke them & stir till smooth then drizzle over top.
use any of the  diff flavored cool whips in place of reg cool whip. ( inow they make vanilla & chocolte not sure what else)

What's you fav flavor for cheese cake??

I think I'm gonna show my grandma this recipe, 'cause she always buys those nasty Philadelphia Cream Cheese: Chocolate Cheesecake in a tub .....yuck... I better get her this recipe today before she makes another cheesecake....

         just so I don't just "steal" your recipe & give it to my grandma: is it okay if i share this recipe w/ her??

   and oh ya, my fave is plain Philly-Style cheesecake w/ milk chocolate drizzled on FRESH, whole strawberries....yummmm

Please feel free to share away!! 
I have been making it for years, one of my friends Moms gave me the recipe back in Jr. High (many, many moons ago.)

Last night I made one in a shortbread crust (I actually found TWO unbroken ones at the store!!!) with a can of very well dranined crushed pineapple in the batter.  It was very tasty!! My friends daughter ate half it after refusing the offer of a Happy Meal!! (Just for the record the Cheese cake was not her dinner)

I want to try one  with crushed pineapple & chopped cherries... I tihnk that would be tasty!!

I also forgot to say in the first post I oftn will use Splenda with 2 tablespoon of reg. sugar. (for some reason the the little reg sugar seems to make a difference.) 

It's cool to make Min's too in the foil cucpcake wrappers with a nila waffer or those chocolate wafers for a crust. 

I was looking back at my notes (we were trying to get my neices & nephew to eat more fruit so we made thee with a ton of fruit & only 1/2 the batter) here are the fruit combos the kiddos likes:

>> Drained manderine oranges (save the juice for homemade jello) in batter.
>> Drained manderine oranges in bater slices of kiwi on top.
>> Sliced Kiwi & strawberry halves, on tip. Diced Kiwi & strawberry in batter.
>> Chocolate cool whip- with sliced straberrries on the bottom in a layer & straberry halves n top.

Dranined manderine oanges

I tried something differnt, a friend of mine had crab cheese cake... not sweet savory.
I wanted to give it a try. My try ay Shrimp Cocktail Cheesecake. (Mostly No bake)

I tried this recipe for the cheesecake: http://www.kraftfoods.com/kf/recipes/its-a-snap-cheesecake-61697.aspx 

I only used 1 tablesppon of sugar & a few pinches of sea salt. omited the vanilla.  I added 3 tablespoons cocktail sauce, a couple shakes Franks Red Hot & the juice form about 1/3 a lemon. added a couple handsfull of cooked shrimp chopped smallish..

Also I used this for the crust:  http://www.justjenndesigns.com/crafts/food/pretzeljello.htm   did the pretzle crust minus the sugar. That part did need to be baked, but only for 10 mins. So it didn't heat the kitchen up too much.

I didn't care for the pink-ish color  but it did taste good.  In the future I think I would make the batter with the salt, pepper, lemon juice & shrimp, then make a spicy-ish topping with more shrimp. cockatail sauce, celery salt, Franks Red Hot. blend everything except the shrimp then hand mix in chopped shrimp to  make a sauce pour over the top of each slice.

I'd also like to try the crust with half reg pretzles & half Syders of Handover Buffalo Wing Pretzles (I Love those things!)
I hope all this makes sense.

nice! I make one similar, using flavored jello as well though to help "set" the cake when I put it in the fridge. My fav has to be lemon, topped with blueberries & a lemon glaze ..mmmm now I feel like makin one!  Grin

!! I never even thought to use thwe flavored cream cheese....  I've always just mixed stuff into the cream cheese.

Lemon & Blueberry sounds really good!! 

I am making one to take to a picnic tomorrow, decorating with blueberrys & raspberries to look like a flag. =)
