Jessica James Patriotic CheesecakeI know some of you won’t believe that I came up with this Patriotic recipe all by myself — meaning those of you who know how much time I spend in the kitchen won’t believe I made this all by myself.

But I had to come up with something to represent my new novel MEANT TO BE, and what could be more patriotic than a beautiful red, white and blue cheesecake?

It is super quick and easy (has to be for me to make it), and will work perfectly for the upcoming Fourth of July holiday. So here goes….


½ cup sugar

8 oz. tub of Cool Whip

8 oz. cream cheese

Graham cracker pie crust

Blueberries and Strawberries to layer and garnish


Sit the cream cheese out an hour or two to soften

Beat cream cheese with sugar

Add Cool Whip and beat again until creamy; set aside

Crumble ¾ of the pie crust into bottom of glass bowl

Add layer of blueberries

Add ¾ of cheesecake mixture

Sprinkle with remaining piecrust

Add remaining cheesecake mixture

Garnish with blueberries and strawberries

 See what I mean?  It’s truly delicious too!

Have a Happy and Safe Independence Day! God Bless America!
