Quick and Easy Cheesecake

Published by at 3 38 am under Recipes

I cook and bake pretty much like I stamp — quick and easy!!! This cheesecake recipe is probably my most requested recipe, and although I did share it here about a year ago, I thought I’d pass it on again. This is always my go-to desert recipe as it is, just as the title says, so quick and easy, but it is also lovely to look at topped with berries and absolutely delicious! And it requires NO baking! I’ll make a few of these for Christmas Eve.


Make, or buy prepared, standard deep dish graham cracker crust use a larger pie pan or else it will overflow.

For filling:

  • Mix 1 envelope Knox gelatin in bowl with1/2 cup sugar.
  • Add 1 cup boiling water and stir until dissolved well, about 5 minutes.
  • In mixer, beat together 2 8-oz. packages of softened cream cheese and 1 tsp vanilla, beating well until smooth. Slowly beat in gelatin/water mixture. Pour into prepared/cooled crust.
  • Refrigerate until firm about 3 hours. Top with cherry pie filling or topping of your choice.

Sorry I have no stamped projects to post, but I will, real soon!!! I still have gift sets I want to make and many thank you notes could have been sent already if only I had them made!!! Time, time!!!! I know it is something we ALL struggle with. Hope this simple cheesecake recipe helps some of you out in the time category. Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas week!!!
