Hi there everyone! It’s Gina from Kleinworth & Co. I’m thrilled to be back today to share one of our family’s favorite desserts, No-Bake Cherry Cheesecake. When I met my husband I found out very quickly that his all time favorite dessert was a no-bake cherry cheesecake. His grandmother would make it for him on every birthday. I had to learn the recipe quickly because she lived far away. It was my mission to perfect it because the more we moved around the harder it was for her to visit & make it for him. Besides, I couldn’t really expect him to wait for her to visit once a year to have some. So today I’m sharing this favorite treat with you all because it’s oh so good!
This whips together as quickly as you can pop everything in the mixer & whip it up. I’m telling you- it’s just minutes. Then after prep I like to let it chill in the fridge for a couple hours before serving.
If you love cheesecake but have little time to go through all the steps to prepare a traditional New York style version- this is definitely for you. It’s all those things you love about cheesecake with very little work.
