No-Bake Cheesecake



There are certain days during the summer when the last place anyone wants to be is in a hot kitchen. But that’s when kids can come to the rescue, making a delicious dessert for the whole family without ever having to ask their parents to turn on the oven.


Prep:25 mins

Total:3 hrs 30 mins

Ingredients:

  • 2 packages (20 sheets) graham crackers
  • 11 tablespoons (1 3/8 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 14-ounce can (1 1/4 cups) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Direction:

  • Step 1: Put graham crackers in a large resealable plastic bag, and crush them with a rolling pin until very fine crumbs form.
  • Step 2: Pour crumbs into a medium bowl; stir in sugar. Add butter, and stir until well combined.
  • Step 3: Press the crumb mixture into a 9-inch spring form pan, spreading it 1 1/2 to 2 inches up the side; press flat. Chill crust in freezer at least 10 minutes.
  • Step 4: Meanwhile, make the filling: Using an electric mixer set at medium-high speed, beat the cream cheese in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in the condensed milk a little at a time, scraping the sides of the bowl, as necessary. Beat in the lemon juice and vanilla.
  • Step 5: Pour the filling into the crust; smooth the top with a rubber spatula. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until firm, 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
  • Step 6: Unclasp sides of pan, and remove cheesecake.
