No-Bake Cherry Cheesecake

I'm testing out a few recipes for a friend and one of her request is no-bake cheesecake. I want recipe without gelatin yet can hold up as a neat slice to support some fruit topping. Freezing is a great way to achieve the clean cut look.


This is a no-bake cheesecake from Nigella Lawson's recipe. The texture is very delicate because the filling was set with whipped cream and icing sugar. Don't be fooled by its lightness because this is not diet food. The creamy cheesecake is topped with sour cherries, so bright and cheery. The cherry topping comes from a recipe in Rose Levy Beranbaum's The Cake Bible. It's a classic.


Lucked out with the light this morning. This photo is entirely untouched.


Read more at Dessert By Candy. Want to make this in a jar? I have the recipe for that too!
