This is not your typical cheesecake. Light, fluffy and a different twist on the crust.

Cook:

1 Hr

Ingredients

1 pkg
cream cheese
1 c
powdered sugar
1
regular container extra creamy cool whip
1/2 tsp
lemon extract
1/4 tsp
lemon zest, grated
1 box
vanilla wafers
1 stick
butter
2 pt
raspberries (can also use frozen raspberries)
1 large
package jello (strawberry flavor)
1 c
boiling water
1/2 c
cold water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Crush vanilla wafers in a food processor or blender until crumbs.
2
Melt butter, add to vanilla wafer crumbs and mix. Press into a 9x13 pan (or 8x8 for a really thick dessert)
3
On medium speed, cream together cream cheese (softened), powdered sugar, lemon extract, lemon zest and Cool Whip until smooth.
4
In separate bowl, add large package of strawberry jello, boiling water, cool water and berries. Let cool and set up until somewhat thick, but not set (you will need to spread/pour it on cream cheese). Frozen berries will help it set up faster.
5
Spread cheese mixture evenly on top of crust.
6
Pour and spread jello/berry mixture on top of cheese. Cover entire cheese mixture to the corners.
7
Chill for about an hour, or until topping has set up until firm and able to slice into.
8
Slice and serve with a sprig of fresh mint on top for presentation.
