Full recipe in video below
35 vanilla wafer cookies (1 1/2 cups), plus more for the top
5 tablespoons light butter melted
8 ounces 1/3 less fat cream cheese softened
1 cup (113g) powdered sugar (I used Lakanto)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 8 ounce containers whipped topping light thawed
1-2 pounds fresh berries (strawberries & blueberries or your favorite)
Place cookies in a large resealable gallon size bag. Seal all but 1" of the bag (so air can escape) and crush with a rolling pin.
Stir cookie crumbs and melted butter with a fork. Press into an 8-inch or 9-inch square pan.
Add cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla to a large mixing bowl. Mix with a hand mixer until smooth, then mix in one container (8-ounces) of whipped topping. Reserve other container for topping.
Slice berries as desired.
Assemble the dessert: spread half the cheesecake mixture on top the crust. Spread half the berries on top. Cover with the remaining cheesecake mixture and top with remaining berries.
Top the dessert with about half the remaining whipped topping. Crush more cookies and sprinkle on top, if desired. Chill for about an hour before serving.
Store in refrigerator for 1-2 days.
