Summer is almost over, but it’s still warm enough to enjoy some frozen treats. I got this idea from a Honey Maid graham cracker box, where they used Cool Whip and cream cheese to top graham crackers with a cheesecake-like filling. It sounded OK, but I decided to go a step further and turn them into frozen cheesecake sandwiches.
This recipe is really easy and you don’t have to freeze it, if you don’t have the time. Just top a graham cracker with the filling and you’re done. Feel free to experiment with this basic recipe. Add some chocolate syrup or lemon juice to the filling, or even some fresh raspberries.
8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 c. thawed Cool Whip
1/4 c. sugar
10 graham crackers broken in half (or use the whole graham cracker like I did)
1. Beat the cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl with electric mixer until well blended. Stir in the Cool Whip.
2. Spread about 1 Tbs. of the mixture onto each graham cracker square. Or generously add to a full graham cracker and top with another to make a sandwich, then freeze until firm.
