Refrigerator Dessert

My Mom made this dessert for a wedding shower many many years ago...before I was born.  Now I have been making it for parties and showers as well.  It is a versatile dessert because you can use any canned pie filling that you wish.  Many times I make half of the dessert with cherries and the other half with blueberries.  The dessert pictured he was made with blueberries.

3 cups graham cracker crumbs (a little more than 2 pkgs)
3/4 cup melted butter
2 - 8 oz packages cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
4 TBS milk
2 envelopes of Dream Whip made according to the package (or sweetened Whipped Cream)
2 cans of pie filling (cherry, strawberry, raspberry or blueberry)

Combine graham cracker crumbs and melted butter.  Press mixture onto the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch cake pan.  Chill in the refrigerator until firm.  After the crust has chilled, cut around the edges of the pan before putting the next layer on top.  This makes it easier to remove the dessert from the pan.

Beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar and milk until blended and smooth.  Spread over the crust.  Chill again until set.

Spread the pie filling over the cream cheese layer.  Spread Dream Whip (or Whipped Cream) on top of pie filling.

Chill overnight.
