No-Bake Cherry Cheesecakes
I meant to post these sweet little no-bake cherry cheesecakes for the 4th of July, but we were so busy with family visiting and I was too tired to get them posted in time! Holiday or not though, these no-bake cheesecakes are perfect all summer long!
A lot of these types of desserts use canned cherry filling, and I just can’t do it. Not when there are bags of the most gorgeous fresh cherries in the produce section! I spent wayyyyy too much money on a gigantic bag of organic cherries a few weeks ago and thought they’d be so perfect for making a fresh cherry topping!
The base for these is the same for all of my no-bake cheesecakes: cream cheese, whipped topping or homemade whipped cream, and a little bit of powdered sugar. And of course, the graham cracker crumb crust!
The topping is just pitted cherries, water, and sugar. You can prep these cheesecakes the night before you plan to serve them, however, I recommend storing the cherry topping separate overnight in the fridge and then just spoon it on before serving!
Oh, and the cherry topping is also absolute perfection served on top of ice cream, oats, pancakes, or yogurt so make extra!
