Recipe: No Bake Cheesecake

Who doesn't love a good cheesecake? 
This recipe is really easy to make, especially if you would use Cool Whip instead of whipped cream. Simple, no bake, but so rich, creamy and delicious!

Classic No Bake Cheesecake
2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened 
1/4 cup sugar 
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 
1 teaspoon lemon juice 
1 cup heavy whipping cream (can substitute 1 8oz tub Cool Whip)

 Beat the cream cheese until smooth, then slowly add the sugar and vanilla. In a clean chilled bowl, beat the whipping cream until soft peaks form. Slowly beat the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture. Spoon filling onto crust. Chill for 4-6 hours before serving.

I made an "Oreo" (actually generic sandwich cookie) crust by removing the frosting, then crushing the cookies to make about 1 1/2 cup crumbs, then add 1/3 cup butter. Mixed and pressed into pan. I decorated the top by placing a cookie cutter gently on top of the spread cheesecake, then pouring the crumbs into the center of the heart, careful not to slop any outside that area, and spread them to the edges of the cutter, then removed the cookie cutter.
