Easy & Tasty

My family enjoy their cheesecakes, especially my dad and sister. If you made cheesecakes before, you know how some recipes can become quite involved. I wondered whether this easy, no bake recipe would win over the cheesecake lovers in my family. Sure enough, it did. The cheesecake was finished the next day.

Great No-Bake Cheesecake

I made this recipe last week. It came out great as well as tasted the delicious. I shared it with co-workers and they loved it. I used pre-made graham cracker crusts and was able to get two pies from the recipe. I've eaten so much of it that I am giving the rest away just to get it out of my refrigerator. I found each day the pie was in the refrigerator the more it set and taste even better. Great recipe. I will be making this for our annual bbq this year, but will do it in the springform pan to get more pie with each slice. I know it's gonna go really fast!!

I am ready for a Huge piece of this Yummy cheesecake.



I just made these for work tomorrow. But I made them in the individual mini muffin tins with little vanilla wafers instead of graham cracker crust. They are delicious and so easy. My neighbor loves them and I know the people are work will. Definitely a keeper.
