I love bringing something sweet to a potluck, but I don’t like spending all day in the kitchen. This is a fresh, uncomplicated approach to making a company-worthy pie without feeling like you’re in dessert jail. — Gina Nistico, Taste of Home Food Editor

  • 2-3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Mixed fresh berries, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Combine cracker crumbs and 1/4 cup sugar with melted butter. Using the bottom of a glass, press cracker mixture onto bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-in. deep-dish pie plate. Bake until set, 12-15 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  2. Meanwhile, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand 5 minutes. Beat cream cheese and remaining sugar until smooth. Slowly beat in cream and vanilla. Microwave gelatin on high until melted, about 10 seconds; beat into cream cheese mixture. Transfer filling to crust. Refrigerate, covered, until set, about 3 hours.
  3. If desired, top with mixed fresh berries. Yield: 8 servings
