This No Bake Cheesecake with Strawberry Sauce is one of my favorite recipes, so delicious, so easy, so quick – I hope it becomes one of your favorites too.
You all know I LOVE desserts, just look at my recipe index or my bucket list and see how many of my recipes are desserts compared to other things. One dessert I really love is cheesecake, but I hate how long most cheesecakes take to prepare, you have to mix everything, bake it, and then sometimes you have to let it sit all night before eating it. I am not a very patient person, so that is hard for me to do. In comes the no bake cheesecake. Although this recipe does have to chill for a couple hours in your freezer, its still fairly quick when it comes to cheesecakes, plus the prep work is like 2 steps and only a few ingredients. Now that is my kind of recipe. And I think you’ll like it too. (I got this recipe from one of my wonderful cousins)
