To make Kraft's Summer Berry Cheesecake, whisk together an 8-ounce package of softened cream cheese and 2 tablespoons sugar, then stir in 1 cup Cool Whip. Spread the cream cheese mixture on the bottom of a pre-made graham cracker crust. Stir together 3/4 cup boiling water and a 3-ounce package of strawberry Jell-O until dissolved. Add in 1/2 cup ice cubes, and stir until the ice melts. Place 1/2 cup blueberries and 1 1/2 cups halved strawberries in single layer in the middle of the pie.

To finish the pie, pour the Jell-O over the fruit and refrigerate for three hours. Top with the remaining 1 cup Cool Whip.
