Blueberry Cheesecake Delights
Sometimes I have a craving for something sweet. I love cheesecake but, I don't always want to make a whole pie. So I run to my handy dandy no bake cheese cake recipe. This a simple silky decadent glass of goodness that requires no oven. No eggs involved at all. You can actually mix all the ingredients together and a rich smooth consistency, pour it in the pie crust and place it in the fridge to set and it ready to serve.
This was the first dessert I learned to make at 16 years old from my neighbor Theresa. I have added lemon zest to my recipe but it is so quick and easy. It can be no-bake but, Theresa taught me to bake it in the oven just till it firms up. I actually like it warm. Either way, it is rich, creamy, and decadent.
No bake cheesecake can be stored in the fridge up to 5 days. You can wrap it in plastic wrap and then in aluminum foil it will keep in the freezer for at least 3 months. Thaw it out in the refrigerator, slice and serve.
