Instant 'Cheese' Cake

What you need: 

2 16oz Tofutti Cream Cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 or 2 teaspoons of mixed spices (cinnamon, nutmeg)
1 Basic Pie Crust, submitted by
1/3 to 1/2 cup light brown sugar

What you do: 

Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
Prepare the basic pie crust per instructions. It is quite simple and shouldn't take more than 10 minutes to do. While laying it in the pie pan, you can adjust the crust thickness at the bottom according to preference.
Bake the crust in the oven for 5-10 minutes.
Mix all the other ingredients in a food processor nicely (my Magic Bullet came in real handy, but I'm guessing any food processor will do the trick as well).
Pour the mixture onto the baked crust. Put it back in the over for 25-30 min.
The cake needs to cool and set. The longer it sets, the better it tastes and looks. I refrigerated it overnight (baked it in the evening) and had a rewarding breakfast the next morning!! :)
Toppings:[br] I tossed some fresh raspberries and walnuts together in the blender and poured that mixture on top before I put the cake in to bake. It came out quite good as the sweetness of the cake contrasted with the tartness of the raspberries. However, for people who might not like the tartness, the basic method should hold.

Ok, so the recipe I used is slightly different . I used 2 containers of tofutti cream cheese, 1 large package of frozen whipped  (soyatoo I think is the brand), some powdered sugar (I would guess at least a cup-- I don't measure, I just sprinkle from the box, mix and taste test), some vanilla extract (1 - 2 tbs), a pre-made graham cracker crust from baking aisle of supermarket (vegan too!) and 1 can of cherry pie topping/filling. I soften the cream cheese in the microwave for about 30 secs to a minute, whip with the whipped cream topping and then add the sugar. You could also used different sweeteners such as agave, etc. Add extract. Pour topping into pic crust. Add cherry topping. Put plastic pie cover on top of pie and let chill in fridge for as long as you can before your house folk attack it! lol This pie does NOT last long. LIke not even a day. It's that good!
