  2. Add 6 tablespoons melted butter, and mix well until crumb mixture holds together. If needed, add remaining 2 tablespoons butter.

  2. In another bowl, lightly whip cream to soft peaks, then gently fold into cream-cheese filling.
  3. Remove crust from freezer, and spoon filling evenly into pan.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap, place in freezer for 30 minutes, then transfer to refrigerator until firm, at least 30 minutes, or up to 24 hours.

To serve,  top with fruit of your choice.  Fresh berries are especially good.
