Simple recipe for no bake vanilla cheesecake. Another one of my multiple cheesecake recipes. Hope you had a chance to try my No bake Oreo , pomegranate , Nutella cheesecakes.

Can’t tell a long story about this classic dessert, but I can definitely recommend to try this recipe and see how easy and simple things, can make your everyday life sweeter and better:)

Be sure to share your feedback and comments after you make this no bake vanilla cheesecake, that tastes so much better with a thick layer of dark ganache. You can skip the chocolate layer if you’re a fan of plain vanilla cheesecake. This is the recipe I usually make for my oldest son, who likes his cheesecake plain.

To make the crust

Place the cookies into food processor and pulse until fine crumbs formed, I crushed mine with a rolling pin, see YouTube tutorial for more details

Add melted butter and mix to incorporate

Pour the ready mixture into the greased cake pan

Using a measuring cup or your fingertips press the cookie crumbs to the pan firmly

You can bake the crust in 350° preheated oven for 10 minutes, or simply set it in fridge to cool down and harden

Meanwhile go ahead and make the cream cheese frosting

In a mixing bowl beat the cream cheese, confectioners sugar and vanilla extract

Beat on low-medium speed 3-4 minutes or until c, without any sugar lamps

Start adding the whipping cream very slowly

Mix on low speed 1-3 minutes,then increase the speed and mix another 1-2 minutes

Pour half of the mixture on the cooled down crust

Use an offset spatula to make the cake as flat as possible

Place in the fridge to firm a little, while you make the chocolate ganache

To make the ganache

Bring the heavy cream to a simmer (do not boil it)

Pour it over the chocolate

Let it stand 1-2 min , add in the butter and stir until incorporated and smooth ganache is formed

You can melt everything together in a microwave, for about 2-3 minutes

Be sure to do that in 30 sec intervals, be careful not to burn it

Allow the ganache to cool down and evenly spread it over the cheesecake 

Place in the fridge to set and firm for 8-10 hours

Optionally you can whip ½ cup heavy whipping cream +2 tbs sugar+½ tsp vanilla extract and pipe a few stars or flowers on your cheesecake, place sliced or whole strawberries over, to give the cake better look

Use a warm knife to slice
