Easy Cheesecake Recipe

 Next to anything chocolate, cheesecake is my second favorite dessert.  I usually just buy my cheesecake {Costco has a really great one!}, but when I tried this one at a friend's house a few months back, I was smitten.  Not only did it taste good but it was sooo easy to make!  
Recipe for Cheesecake:

2 8oz. cream cheese
1 8oz. tub of whipped cream
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

warm cream cheese in the microwave for 1 minute :: then, in a bowl, cream together all of the above ingredients.  Set aside.
Cheesecake Crust:

option 1:  6 Tbs butter {melted}
                9 whole graham crackers {crushed}
                1/4 cup sugar
               mix melted butter, crushed graham crackers, and sugar in a bowl :: then pour mixture in a pie plate                   and press down around the bottom and all the way around the sides.

option 2:   buy a ready-made graham cracker crust!

Add cheesecake mixture to graham cracker crust and refrigerate for three hours {...or less if you just can't wait to try it!}.

For extra flava I topped my cheesecake with some strawberries.  {the only kind I had were frozen, so I defrosted them a bit in the microwave...still tasted yummy.}  However, drizzled chocolate or any other kind of berry would be delicious too.

And that's that!  It's so simple, isn't it?  
I. Love. It!

My husband doesn't like cheesecake at all, but I love it! This looks yummy! Do you know if this cheesecake has a "heavy cream cheese" taste? Or do you know of a simple recipe that might be a good medium ground?
