My favorite cheesecake to make is a no bake cheesecake. 
I like the simple ingredients and how fresh it tastes with our favorite toppings.
If you prefer a thicker, rich bake cheesecake, I've listed a recipe for that as well. :)

- 1/3 cup of sugar
- 1 cup (1/2 pint) sour cream
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 (8 oz.) container frozen whipped topping, mildly thawed
- Fruit or caramel sauce for garnish (optional)

Beat cream cheese until smooth; gradually beat in sugar.  Blend in sour cream and vanilla.  fold in whipped topping.  Spoon into two graham cracker crusts.  Chill until set for a few hours. 

Garnish with fruit or toppings as desired. 

Easy Bake Cheesecakes
