This smooth and creamy cheesecake-like treat is light, sweet and pretty, too. Convenience products make it quick and easy to prepare. “My husband also likes this dessert when I substitute blueberry pie filling,” notes Lanae Powell of McPherson, Kansas.

"I have been looking for a dessert from the 70's, this seems to be it except that crushed Club Crackers were used instead of the graham cracker crust. I am going to try the recipe with the Club Cracker substitution and see if this is the one I was looking for. The recipe also called for Dream Whip as aulait stated."
