No-Bake Cheesecake (gluten free)


This no-bake cheesecake is perfect for summer.  The cold, creamy dessert can be topped with fresh fruit or your favorite fruit pie filling.  I usually use Kinnikinnick gluten free graham crackers, but other gluten free graham crackers would work also, as would crushed gluten free cereal.

No-Bake Cheesecake (gluten free)


Crust:
1 box Kinnikinnick Gluten Free Graham Crackers (220 grams)
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter (¾ cup), melted*
Crush graham crackers.  Combine ingredients and press into 9 x 13 x 2 inch baking dish
Filling:
2 8-oz packages cream cheese (room temp)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 8-oz containers Cool Whip
Combine the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and half the Cool Whip.  Mix in remainder of Cool Whip and spread over crust.
Top with pie filling or fresh fruit.  Chill thoroughly before serving.
 
 
Layering the filling with fruit or pie filling in canning jars makes for a fun, easily stored dessert for a picnic.  Just make sure to keep the no-bake cheesecake cold.
 
 
Hope everyone is having a lovely summer!
