If you love a no bake cheesecake, this recipe is for you! It is light and fluffy. Even though it is made with lemon flavoured gelatin you cannot taste the lemon, so if you are not a lemon fan you will not notice it! My Aunt Angela always made this cheesecake when we were kids, it was my favourite.
What you will need for filling:
- 2 x 250 gr cream cheese
- 1 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup hot boiling water
- 1 pkg of lemon flavoured gelatin*
- 4-5 heaping tablespoons of thawed cool whip
- 1 can cherry pie filling
- 6 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 and 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
Combine the crumbs and melted butter and pat down in a pie pan.
Make the filling. Boil the water and combine with gelatin, whisk for 3 minutes. Meanwhile beat cream cheese with sugar until smooth.
Add in gelatin and beat until well combined. Add in cool whip and mix until well combined.
Pour filling into crust. Refrigerate over night or at least 6 -8 hours to set. Top with cherry pie filling. Enjoy!
*I used Fosters gelatin, found at middle eastern or Mediterranean stores
