NO Bake Cherry Cheesecake

Share all the things you love!

I am always looking for ways to make good food, quickly. I don’t like spending a lot of time in the kitchen, but we need to eat!  I’ll  have to admit that hubby does most of the cooking and I do most of the planning and shopping. This No Bake Cherry Cheesecake dessert is something I have been making for 25+ years. It’s been a family favorite for a long time and I make sure the ingredients are always on hand.

A few years ago, I updated the recipe to add a few healthy twists. Greek yogurt, light cream cheese and reducing the confectioner’s sugar took away some of the fat and calories. Even though I am trying to live a healthy lifestyle, I still eat the occasional dessert. It’s all about moderation.

Eliminating a food or food group completely never works for me, so an occasional treat is something I can enjoy guilt free. This recipe for No Bake Cherry Cheesecake is perfect to take to a pot luck dinner or it would look great on a holiday table!

The best thing about this recipe is that you can whip it up in less than 20 minutes. In hour home cherry is usually the favorite topping, but I have used blueberry, raspberry and blackberry too. You could easily add fresh fruit instead of canned pie filling. This is a very versatile recipe that you can customize to your favorite flavors.

The recipe starts with the perfect pan. I was using a square glass 9 x 9 dish as my go to for the no bake cheesecake, but this time I switched it up a bit and used a cast iron skillet. Doesn’t it look pretty? The individual size skillets would be great, too.

Layering is easier than I thought it would be in a cast iron skillet. I just spread the layers with a wide rubber spatula. There is always some extra filling stuck to that rubber spatula so you should recruit a helper that likes to lick the spoon. OR you could always take care of that yourself so you get a head start on this sweet treat.
