No-Bake Cheesecake

Today I'll post a recipe I said I would post a while ago - the no-bake cheesecake. It's really simple and reminds me or a cream pie, quite different from the real cheesecake, besides the consistence, which is not the same too. I really could say that I liked more this kind of cheesecake, since the sourness of the cream cheese is not really noticed at all. The main flavour here is the whipped cream. Just woderful combined with my homemade strawberry jam!

Graham Cracker Crust:

1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup margarine, softened
1/4 cup sugar

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
1 (12.5 ounce) can cherry pie filling (or other filling of your choice)


Mix together graham cracker crumbs, margarine, and sugar in a bowl until well incorporated and crumbly. Press into a pie plate, going up the sides as much as possible. Beat together the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl until smooth and spreadable. Whisk whipped cream into cream cheese mixture until smooth. Pour cream cheese into prepared crust. Smooth the top with a spatula, and refrigerate until firm, about 2 to 3 hours. Spread the cherry pie filling over the top, and refrigerate until serving.


  1. In the summer months no-bake cheesecake is perfect with all the berries of the season. It would also be perfect with the jam!!! Great idea.

  2. Oh wow, I like the look of this. I think I would go for strawberries or raspberries. Fantastic.

  3. yummy, and simple so now you have to find a Thai or Vietamese store lol
