I found another recipe for a great summer dessert that's easy to make. And once again, you don't have to bake or cook anything. I like that because there's no chance of burning the house down. Make a copy of this and fix it on one of these hot summer days that you know we're going to have real soon.

Made with cream cheese, Kool Whip, and fruit, this chilled pie would make a great dessert for family get-togethers.
