Easy No Bake Cheesecake


Not only is this an easy no bake cheesecake recipe, it's the best.  Try it yourself - it's heaven on a fork.

I absolutely love this homemade dessert, actually I prefer this over a baked cheesecake.  You will know what I am talking about once you taste this.

You may use any pie filling for this recipe.

If you don't want the canned filling - just slice strawberries and cover with sugar. Let sit for a few hours to macerate (produce juice).  

Instead of a pie plate, just use cupcake liners.

Easy No-Bake Cheesecake Recipe

1-1/2 cups crushed pretzels (use blender)
5 TBS melted butter
4-1/2 TBS white sugar

3 (8oz) pkgs Philadelphia cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup heavy cream, whipped with 2 TBS powdered sugar
1 TBS vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups strawberry or cherry pie filling (or your favorite for topping)

PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. (This is just for the crust)

Mix together crushed pretzels, butter, and sugar in a bowl until well incorporated and crumbly. Press into a 9x13 inch pan and bake for 10 minutes; cool completely.

Beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla; set aside. Beat the heavy whipping cream and 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar until peaks form. Add this to the cream cheese mixture and mix well. Spoon cream cheese filling into prepared crust. Smooth the top with a spatula, and refrigerate until firm, about 2 to 3 hours.

Spread the cherry (strawberry, blueberry, etc) filling over the top, and refrigerate until serving. Easy to make isn't it? Hands down, I prefer this easy no bake cheesecake recipe to the baked cheesecake version - any day.

*If you don't want to use the pretzel crust use the following:

1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup white sugar

This easy no bake cheesecake recipe is the base for whatever topping you want and is a pure vanilla enthusiast dream.

Vanilla No Bake Cheesecake Recipe

3 pkgs Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
2 TBS pure vanilla extract

2 cups crushed vanilla wafers
2 tablespoons white sugar
2/3 cup walnut pieces
6 tablespoons butter, melted


For the crust:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. You will need one buttered, nine-inch deep-dish pie pan either a light-colored or glass pan.

Crush the vanilla wafers. Place the crushed wafers in a deep-dish pan. Place the nuts in a food processor or blender and pulse just long enough to chop the nuts finely, not into a paste. Scrape the nuts into the pie pan. Add the sugar. Stir to combine.

Add the melted butter and combine well. Press the mixture into the buttered pie pan making certain that the crust is evenly thick.

Bake for 8 minutes or until it just starts to brown on the edges. Do not over bake. A light-colored or glass pan will absorb less heat than a dark one and help ensure against over baking. Cool.

For the filling:
Beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, heavy whipping cream and vanilla in a bowl until smooth and spreadable. Taste the filling - you may add another tablespoon of vanilla if you wish. Pour cream cheese mixture into prepared crust. Smooth the top with a spatula, and refrigerate until firm, about 2 to 3 hours.

Top with fresh berries or any of your favorite toppings like fresh raspberry sauce, caramel sauce or homemade butterscotch sauce.
