No-Bake Cheesecake

Adina Elena Vladulescu
This is truly the most incredible no-bake cheesecake! It is also very easy to make and refreshing. This smooth and creamy dessert sets up beautifully in the refrigerator. Unlike regular cheesecake, it is not overly heavy or sweet. You must absolutely give it a try!
Prep Time 25 mins
Total Time 8 hrs
Course Dessert
Servings 10 slices

Ingredients
  

For the crust:

  • 200 g graham crackers crumbled
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter melted

For the cheesecake:

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 750 g full-fat cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice fresh
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the cherry sauce:

  • 2 cups cherries fresh or frozen, pitted and cut in half
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice fresh
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch

Instructions
 

  • In a bowl, stir the graham cracker crust ingredients together. Pour into a 9-inch springform pan and pack in very tightly. The finer the crumbs and the tighter they are packed, the less likely they will fall apart when cutting the cheesecake. You can use the bottom of a measuring cup to make the packing easier. Set aside.
  • In a second bowl, using a hand mixer on medium-high speed, whip the cold heavy cream into stiff peaks, about 4-5 minutes. Set aside.
  • In a third bowl, using the hand mixer on medium speed, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add the sour cream, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Beat for 2-3 extra minutes until combined.
  • Turn the hand mixer’s speed to low and slowly incorporate the whipped cream into the cheesecake filling. Go as slowly as you can to avoid deflating the air in the whipped cream.
  • Spread the filling into the crust and smooth down the top as much as possible. Refrigerate for at least 6-8 hours or overnight for better results.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine the cherries, sugar, water and lemon juice. Bring to boil over medium heat. Simmer for about 5 minutes until the cherries tenderize slightly. Stir every so often.
  • Make a slurry by combining the cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water. Slowly pour the slurry into the cherries while stirring constantly. Simmer for 2 more minutes while still stirring. Turn off the heat and allow the sauce to further thicken by leaving it on the stove. Once it has come down to room temperature, refrigerate next to the cheesecake.
  • Once the cheesecake is sufficiently chilled, use a knife to gently loosen it up from the rim of the springform pan. Then, remove the rim. Spread the cherry sauce on top and use a sharp knife to cut the cheesecake into slices for serving.
  • Enjoy!
