Perfectly smooth and creamy No Bake Cheesecake. If you love cheesecake but hate the time involved in making it then this no-bake cheesecake is for you! Creamy, airy, rich, and delicious with a graham cracker crust — and only 30 minutes of prep work!
Servings 12 servings
For the Crust
- 3 cups graham cracker crust
- ½ cup brown sugar packed
- ¾ cup salted butter melted
For the Filling
- 1 ½ cups heavy cream very cold
- 3 8-ounce blocks cream cheese
- ½ cup sugar
- 2/3 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup sour cream at room temperature
- 1 cup fresh berries
- spray whipped cream as desired
- strawberry or raspberry sauce as desired
Prepare the Crust
Stir together graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, and melted butter.
Press mixture firmly (this is important to make sure the crust doesn't fall apart!) into bottom of a 10-inch springform pan. Freeze for 10-20 minutes while you prepare the filling.
Prepare the Filling
In a glass bowl, whip cream (this is quicker and easier with an electric mixer but can be done by hand) until stiff peaks form.
In a second bowl, cream together cream cheese and sugar. Mix in powdered sugar, vanilla, and sour cream. Add and mix in whipped cream.
Scoop filling into frozen crust and use a spatula or spoon to smooth out the top into an even layer.
Chill in fridge (do not freeze) 4 hours or overnight.
Top with berries and whipped cream if desired, slice, and serve.
Cream cheese: I prefer this with full-fat cream cheese, but it will work with reduced fat.
Add a little tang: I love this recipe as written - light on the tang, but I know some folks like their cheesecake with a lot of tang. If that's you, I've got your back! Just add 1-2 teaspoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice to the filling mixture.
Alternate topping suggestions: caramel or salted caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, powdered sugar.
