The other day my middle son, who is 5, asked me why it was so hot when we went outside to run errands. I told him that the earth is closer to the sun during the summer months. He replied, “The earth needs to back off a little!” Hahaha!
I’ve been collecting a bunch of no bake recipes to share with you because no one is wanting to turn their oven on in this heat wave! I couldn’t wait to share this recipe with you, though.
I’ll let you in on a little secret…I haven’t always loved cheesecake. In fact when I was younger, I thought it was terrible! I couldn’t tell you the exact moment I changed my (very strong) opinion, but I’m sure glad I did.
That is why I love this No Bake Cheesecake recipe so much! It’s one of those great recipes that I can always have the ingredients on hand and make in under 30 minutes. That in fact can be a dangerous thing so I always make sure I’m making it when I know I have to share it!
There is no baking involved and only has 5 ingredients and that’s including the crust! I knew I was in “trouble” the moment a friend shared the recipe with me.
