Crowd-size Cheesecake

Do you ever need to take a dessert somewhere to feed a crowd of people? Well, then this recipe is for you. It is extremely easy to make, affordable, and down right delicious. Believe me you will get rave reviews from everyone that eats it. I have been making this recipe  for a very long time and is one of our families favorite recipes. Our good family friend, Janis, brought this to a get together and we have been making it ever since. Thanks, Janis, for this wonderful recipe. If you need a large cool dessert for this summer, please, I beg you to make this. One other great thing about it is you can use your favorite choice of pie filling, make your own fruit topping, or use fresh fruit/berries that are in season at the time!!
Crowd-size  Cheesecake
1 box white, vanilla, or yellow cake mix(made according to package directions)
2 packages(8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1 large tub cool whip
3 cup powdered sugar
2-3 cans favorite pie filling or 3-4 cups fresh berries or fruit of your choice
Mix the cake according to package directions. Pour batter into a large cookie sheet with sides. Bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool completely. Meanwhile. In a large bowl beat the cream cheese until creamy add the powdered sugar and beat till fluffy. Mix in the cool whip until well combined. Spread over the cooled cake. Top with pie filling or fruit. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or overnight. Serve. Store leftovers in the fridge. If there are any!!!
