How to make no bake lemon cheesecake: 

This is a no bake cheesecake recipe, you read that right. In fact, you can have these lemon cheesecake bites ready in about 15 minutes.

A quick, sweet, fresh tasting recipe that everyone will love. You can skip the baking of the phyllo shells, it’s not neccesary but does make them crispy.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Place phyllo shells on a baking sheet and bake until lightly toasted, about 5 minutes; let cool.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, briskly whisk together softened cream cheese, yogurt, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla until smooth.

Spoon cream cheese mixture into a plastic ziptop food storage bag, snip off a corner and evenly pipe mixture into baked shells (or fill with a spoon); top each with a piece of strawberry and garnish with lemon zest. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate up to 4 hours. Yields 1 tart per serving.
