For sure not like a traditional cheesecake, but creamier and a little sweeter and a whole lot easier!!!… – Check it out at http://www.32turns.com/no-bake-cheesecake/

No Bake Cheesecake

I guest posted this No Bake Cheesecake recipe last week on Kara’s blog “Mine for the Making”.


It was so much fun to visit her blog for the day, (she is so cute) but I wanted to share this recipe with all of you as well just in case you missed it last week!

Pin It
A little background, this recipe came from my Great Grandmother on my mother’s side. It is delicious and super easy, definitely a winner in my book. Plus, it looks pretty, and who doesn’t like that?

First you must have a crust. You can buy a graham cracker crust at the grocery store, they are actually really good; but I like to make my own, I think they taste better.

Ingredients: for a 9 inch crust
-graham cracker crumbs
-1/4 cup sugar
-1/4 cup melted butter

Place 1 package graham crackers in a gallon ziploc bag and use a rolling pin to pound and roll the crackers into very fine crumbs. Did I mention this recipe is extremely useful for releasing pent up stress and anxiety????

Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar and butter in bowl. If you don’t have a pastry cutter (like the one shown below) just use a fork, it will work just as well! Make sure you get it all evenly mixed together.

Then I use a spoon to press the crumb mixture in the bottom and sides of my pie pan. Then stick it in the fridge. It has to chill for 1 hour before you can fill it.

So while it is chilling in the fridge, go get a coke, put your feet up, and when your hour is over, this is how you make the delicious filling.

Ingredients: Cheesecake
-1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese
-1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
-1/3 cup lemon juice
-1 tsp vanilla

Beat cream cheese in a bowl until it is light and fluffy.

Then add the sweetened condensed milk and blend thoroughly.

Add lemon juice and vanilla, blend again and pour into crust! Stick it back into the fridge and let it chill for 3 hours before you serve it. This gives it a chance to set up.
Voila!!! Cheesecake with no bake! Love it! Don’t forget to spoon some of your favorite fruit topping over the cheesecake before you serve it. I always just use the canned pie filling that you can find in the baking isle at the grocery store. Cherry is my favorite!
