THE BEST NO-BAKE CHEESECAKE


It’s all fine and good to have a no-bake chocolate cheesecake waiting in the wings to impress everyone in your life, but though I may be the biggest chocolate lover on the planet, even I know that you need options.
And that’s why (just like I promised), here is the best no-bake cheesecake on the planet. I should know. I’ve made about a million different versions over the last decade.

INGREDIENTS

CRUST:
  •  1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (7.25 ounces, about 13 rectangle graham crackers)
  •  2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  •  6 tablespoons butter, melted

FILLING:
  •  16 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature (but not warm)
  •  1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  •  1 cup (4 ounces) powdered sugar
  •  1/2 cup sour cream
  •  3/4 cup cold heavy cream (see note)


INSTRUCTIONS

  1. For the crust, in a medium bowl, combine the cracker crumbs and sugar. Stir in the melted butter until well-combined. Press the mixture into the bottom and 1- or 2-inches up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan or into the bottom and sides of a 9.5-inch pie plate (a regular 9-inch pie plate might work but the crust and filling will be extra thick). Refrigerate until the filling is ready.
