Quick and Simple Cheesecake
In the scheme of trying to make life a little more simple around here, finding the simplest recipes has become a bit of a a habit. I’m trying to come up with things that I’ll be able to whip up really fast for my family once the baby is here, without compromising the ingredients. I don’t want to slack off TOO much on my mommy duties!
I came across this simple cheesecake recipe, and I’m beyond excited to share it with you all. I am floored at how easy this was to throw together, yet it tastes SO good! The ingredient list is minimal and there is no baking involved. Oh yeah, that’s right-NO. BAKING. INVOLVED. I know that has to make you smile. With summer around the corner, the last thing I want is to have my oven on all of the time. It gets hot and humid enough as it is, here in NC. Any recipe that omits that appliance is a winner in my book!

Hi, do you use fresh squeeze lemon or lemon juice from a bottle?
Your intro says “The ingredient list is minimal and there is no baking involved. Oh yeah, that’s right-NO. BAKING. INVOLVED.”
But directions say “Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 7 mins.”
That’s only for the crust, I believe when our contributor wrote this she meant that the cheesecake does not need to be baked.
