No Bake Cherry Lemon Cheesecake
No Bake Cherry Lemon Cheesecake is the perfect summer dessert. Bright lemon zest is added to the creamy cheesecake which perfectly complements the sweet cherry topping.
I love seeing all the different color cherries when I walk through the farmers market this time of year. Then it dawned on me, I do not have a cherry recipe on this blog! My favorite way to enjoy cherries is just snacking on them, but I live with a self-proclaimed cheesecake ‘connoisseur’ who requested a special cheesecake.
It’s warm and humid at the coast here in Los Angeles and I whenever I can avoid turning on the oven, it’s a good day. So, given that I have an outstanding request for a cheesecake, not wanting to heat up the kitchen and that I am clearly in need of a good cherry recipe, a no bake cherry lemon cheesecake was the only solution.
Instead of using my round, springform pan for the cheesecake, I decided to change it up and make it in my 5 x 10-inch loaf pan. Now this is a bit of a challenge because the springform allows for easy removal of the cheesecake. So how am I going to get it out of a loaf pan? I lined it with plastic wrap and left some hanging over the sides to act as handles. And it actually worked!
