This awesome dessert shows a great way to use our Felix lingonberry jam. Why not give it a try at one of your future family gatherings this fall? The only risk is that people will skip dinner just to make room for more dessert.

Graham Cracker Crust.
Place the graham crackers into a large ziploc bag. Crush them with the flat end of a tenderizer or a rolling pin. (You could use a food processor if you prefer.)
Place the butter into a mixing bowl and melt it into liquid form in the microwave.
Add the crushed graham crackers and the sugar to the butter in the bowl and mix well.
Coat an 8×8 casserole dish lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
Place the graham cracker mixture evenly across the bottom of the casserole dish. Press down with a spoon to ensure that it is packed. I find this helps it stay together when slicing later.
Bake the crust for 10 to 12 minutes at 350°F.
Let the crust cool off before filling. I actually like to let it cool for a few minutes and then refrigerate it for about 10 minutes.
Place cream cheese into a large mixing bowl and soften. (I microwaved for 2 minutes on half power.)
Add the COOL WHIP to the bowl and stir.
Add the sugar to the bowl and stir well.
Add the lingonberries and stir.
Pour cream cheese mixture on top of crust, smoothing with a spoon or knife.
Refrigerate until firm. It’ll be ready at 2 hours but will be better at 4 hours. Serve immediately.
