Good morning and a happy August to you. I hope that you had a great weekend! We had a nice weekend at home, watching the rain, reading any relaxing. I did feel sorry for all of the people who came to relax by the ocean in the sun this weekend but I have to tell you that the heat has been blistering and we needed the rain.
As the temperatures have been so hot I have not allowed myself to turn on the oven and it is killing me. Baking is how I relive stress and that fact that I have not baked in two weeks is starting to bother me, thank goodness for yoga.
I did make these Individual No-Bake Cheesecakes this weekend though, just so I could get in the kitchen and feel as if I was doing something. They are so easy and so delicious and taste just like baked cheesecake.
No-Bake Cheesecake with Berries
Recipe from Chef Savvy
Makes 2-4 Servicing
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 cup heavy cream
8 oz. softened cream cheese
4 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
squeeze of fresh lemon juice
berries for garnish
Combine the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and sugar in a bowl. Spoon into 2-4 serving dishes(depending on how big you want your dessert). Refrigerate until filling is ready.
In the bowl of a stand mixer beat whipping cream until soft peaks form, then either change the bowl or spoon whipped cream into another bowl so that you can reuse the mixer bowl.
In the bowl of a stand mixer beat the cream cheese, vanilla, lemon juice and the sugar with the whisk attachment until smooth and creamy and free of lumps. Then filed in the heavy cream. Then whisk with the mixer until combined and lump free.
Spoon mixture into dishes, top with berries and place in the refrigerator until set, about 1-2 hours.
I hope that you have a great week!
