5 Secrets To The Perfect Cookie

Tips & tricks to achieve the most delicious cookies of your life!

What is the secret to a good Cheesecake?

The secret to a good no bake cheesecake is starting with room temperature cream cheese. This is super important for a creamy and smooth filling. When the cream cheese is cold it will leave lumps in the filling mixture that are virtually impossible to remove.

It is also imperative that you allow a no bake cheesecake to set up for at least 2-4 hours and preferably overnight. That is one of the great things about a no-bake cheesecake. You can make it a day or two ahead of time without any problems.

Having a good springform pan will also give you cheesecake that looks amazing. Being able to remove the sides of the pan gives you the traditional looking cheesecake without any extra effort. Of course, if you don’t have one a pie plate can also be used.

Is Baked or Unbaked Cheesecake Better?

It is a personal preference as to whether you prefer baked or unbaked cheesecake better. There are definite differences between the two cheesecakes. For instance, a baked cheesecake includes eggs in the batter and is baked {obviously}. This results in a denser cheesecake.

An unbaked cheesecake is made without eggs. It normally used whipped cream {or whipped topping} to create the structure of the filling. This kind of cheesecake requires hours in the refrigerator to set up but is super light in texture.

I prefer a no-bake cheesecake not only because it is light and creamy but also because they are so easy. They may require a few hours to set up but they only take minutes to make. In fact, here are 7 no bake cheesecake recipes that you will love and are perfect for fall!

Should you Bake the Crust of a No Bake Cheesecake?

I don’t think you need to bake the crust of a no bake cheesecake. After all, if you baked it then it wouldn’t be a no-bake cheesecake anymore. If you get the right consistency of ingredients there isn’t a need.

All of the crusts on the Fall Cheesecakes above have crust recipes that are no bake. Each of the crusts can also be mixed and matched to what you like and prefer. So don’t get stuck thinking you have to use the crust given on the cheesecake recipe.

This Vanilla Wafer No Bake Crust recipe is a recipe that goes wonderfully with almost any cheesecake. But if you want to go with something a bit more nontraditional try this No Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Crust.

The truth is that there is no right or wrong way to decide what kind of crust to pair with your cheesecake. The most important thing is to add one of these recipes to your fall and make it delicious.

Why is my No Bake Cheesecake so Soft?

If you find that the no bake cheesecake is too soft then the cheesecake hasn’t been refrigerated for long enough. It is so important to not skip this step.

For best results a no bake cheesecake should be refrigerated overnight. When the cheesecake doesn’t get enough time to set up the filling will be more like a mousse.

Now it is time to grab a recipe {or all of the recipes} and start making cheesecake. Most importantly don’t forget to…ENJOY EVERY BITE!
