Everybody needs a good no-bake pie recipe in their back pocket. This is the kind of pie you whip up when your grandma invites you last minute to a cook-out or to take to game night when it’s so hot you can’t bear to turn on the oven.
I have been making this no-bake cherry cheesecake pie ever since I was a little girl. It was a family favorite in my house-perfect for those hot summer Sunday dinners.
It was also the dessert that taught me about confectioner’s sugar. I had never seen that particular nomenclature for powdered sugar when I was younger and so I assumed it meant granulated sugar. It did not. It was the grittiest pie my family had ever tasted! But they are good people and ate it anyway!
Ways to Customize:
The best part about this pie, is that it’s super customizable based on what your needs are for the day.
- If you make your own crust, you can put it in a 9×13 inch cake pan for easier access at a potluck.
- If you only want 1 pie, load all the cheesecake filling into a 10 inch crust and use 1 can of pie filling.
- You can choose any kind of pie filling for the top. My family likes cherry and blueberry but pretty much any pie filling will work (except maybe pumpkin…). I can imagine it would be quite lovely with peach pie filling in late summer or maybe apple in the fall.
