Desserts, Recipes

Sometimes I like to be elaborate and sometimes I like to be simple. When it comes to baking that is… So here’s a super simple cheesecake recipe that requires no baking a little effort.

No-bake Cherry Cheesecake

What you need:

  • 2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 10 Tbsp (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temp
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 can cherry pie filling

What to do:

  1. Cream together 1/2 cup of the sugar and cream cheese until smooth and creamy and set aside.
  2. in a stand mixer, whip cream until small peaks form.
  3. Fold 1/4 of the whipped cream mixture into the cream cheese mixture, once combined, add the remaining whipped cream and fold in gently.
  4. In another bowl, combine graham crackers, sugar, melted butter and stir to combine.
  5. Evenly distribute the graham cracker mixture into 2 lightly greased cupcake tins. Use a shot glass to pack the graham cracker crust tightly into each tin.
  6. Spoon even amounts of the cream cheese mixture evenly into each tin and spread to fill.
  7. We’re done! Place the tins in the freezer for 1 hour and then use a knife to pop each cheesecake out and then refrigerate until ready. Spoon a few cherries on top of each before serving.
