No Bake Lemon Cheesecake

Perfect on a hot day is this no bake lemon cheesecake which is light and refreshing compared to its baked counterpart.

Fresh lemons provide the main flavor for this dessert using both its juice and zest (grated yellow part of the lemon skin). The tart nature of the flavoring adds to the refreshing characteristics of the tart.

The crust is a traditional crumb base, however, the recipe doesn’t specify what crumbs to use, generally, this can be any plain style crisp biscuit/cookie such as digestive, graham crackers, or vanilla wafers.

Ingredients

Crust

2 1/2 cups sweet crumbs

4oz (125g) melted butter

1 cup whipping cream (thickened cream)

8oz (250g) cream cheese, room temperature

1/4 cup hot water

1 tablespoon gelatin

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest

1/2 cup milk

Equipment

pie tin or cake tin

Recipe Directions

  1. Combine the sweet crumbs with the melted butter and mix well.

  2. Tip the crumbs into the pie tin then press into the base and sides of the tin to create a pie crust. Chill to set the butter.
