From time to time we want something that sort of tastes like cheese cake but doesn't take so much time.
After some "fiddling around" this is what we've come up with.
1 graham cracker crust (we buy the store brand)
1 package instant pudding (we've mostly done french vanilla, but chocolate or lemon would be good too)
1 8 ounce package low fat cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups milk, divided (we use 1%)
1 cup whipped cream --- entirely optional, we used some out of a squirt can (Rediwhip)
Beat together the cream cheese and 1/2 cup of the milk until smooth and creamy and free of lumps
Add pudding mix and remaining milk, whip for 2 minutes
Fold in whipped cream if using
Pour into crust
Chill for at least 2 hours
