Easy No-Bake Cheesecake

Do you have a particular recipe that everyone seems to want once they try it? This Easy No-Bake Cheesecake is one of those recipes for me. I can't count the number of times I have given this particular recipe out - even my own gramma wanted it!

Although I love traditional cheesecake, sometimes I love the no-bake version even more. :) I love that it's quick and easy .... sure, it's not exactly "cheesecake," but it is good none-the-less! Personally, I like a good crumb to cheesecake ratio - but if you prefer less, feel free to adjust it to your preference. You can also easily halve the "cheesecake" portion of this recipe and use a pre-made graham cracker crust to make the even faster or to feed a smaller crowd.

Printable recipe
Yield: 18-24 servings

For the crust:
3 cups of finely ground graham crackers (about 24 crackers)
⅔ cup sugar
¾ cup (1½ sticks) butter, melted

For the cheesecake:
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
⅔ cup sugar
1 tub (16 oz.) Cool Whip, thawed

1-2 cans (20-21 oz. each) cherry pie filling - or the flavor of your choice (optional)

In a medium bowl, combine the graham crackers, sugar and melted butter. Press the mixture into a 9x13-in. baking dish. Chill the crust while preparing the cheesecake layer.

Beat cream cheese and sugar in a large bowl until smooth. Gently stir in the Cool Whip. Spread over the prepared crust. Refrigerate 4 hours or until set. Spoon pie filling evenly over the top of the cheesecake or spoon it on individual portions. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.

  21. So happy to have found you. Was looking for a no bake cheesecake to take for our annual family campout Thanksgiving this coming weekend. I know two little granddaughters who would love the SweetTart Cheesecake Pie, as well. We are definitely thankful to be done harvest, we grow wheat and canola, it was a very rainy last two months here instead of typically dry. And very dry May and June when it's typically wet. Thank you, and hello from Alberta, Canada.

    1. Thank you for stopping by, Debbie! I hope you enjoyed the cheesecake! :)
