No-Bake Cherry Cheesecake
One of my favorite memories as a child was having this Graham Cracker Pie every summer. My mom used to make it on special occasions and it was always the perfect summer dessert.
This easy no-bake cheesecake recipe was shared with us from my neighbor, Judy, who was lived right across the street. She always made the best meals!
My favorite meal that she would make would be fresh fish that her husband, Gratton, had caught, steamed broccoli and fruit. They were organic before organic was cool. I don’t remember many times that I had dinner at their house that dessert was served but this pie was one that I remember being there on occasion.
I am so glad she passed along the recipe to my mom to make for us as we grew up. And now, I make it about once a year for my family and it always gets rave reviews! I don’t know why I don’t make it more because it’s so easy!
You can whip up this No-Bake Graham Cracker Crust Pie in under 20 minutes if you use a ready-made pie crust as I did here.
Of course, making your own graham cracker crust is pretty easy. But, if you’re in a time crunch or need to take a dish to a pot luck, then a store-bought crust is the way to go!
Plus, there’s just something nostalgic about using a store-bought pie crust for me that I go that route!
With cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, sour cream and whipped cream being the only ingredients, this easy dessert is budget-friendly and delicious! Add your favorite toppings – cherry pie filling, strawberries, blueberries – or leave it plain!
I’ve even made a no-bake Lemon Cheesecake Pie with this recipe and it’s just as good!

FAQ for making Cherry Cheesecake
How long will cheesecake last?
Cheesecake will last up to 5 days in the refrigerator. It’s best to wrap it tightly in plastic wrap if it has been opened.
Can you freeze no-bake cheesecake?
Yes! Wrap the cheesecake, still in the pie plate or dish, with plastic wrap, place in the freezer, and freeze until solid. You only need to remove it from the freezer to the fridge to defrost when you’re ready to eat it – overnight is best.
