No-Bake Cheesecake Jars

These no-bake cheesecake jars are SO good and make a fuss-free take on the old cheesecake classic! This easy no-bake cheesecake recipe is a spin on a traditional cheesecake recipe that is served cold in small individual portions and requires absolutely no baking!

How to make the cheesecake jars

The method to make the cheesecake jars is very straightforward. Crush the graham crackers and mix with melted butter. Whip the heavy cream until fluffy. Beat the cream cheese with sour cream, lemon juice, vanilla, and sugar, then fold the whipped cream in the cream cheese mixture. Scoop into the jars, on top of the graham crackers, then top with sweet dark cherries when ready to serve. Easy!

1. To make the cherry cheesecakes: Melt the butter in the microwave in a large bowl. Stir in the graham cracker crumbs and mix well – The graham cracker crumbs will get slightly sticky. Spoon a generous amount of graham crackers into the jars. Set the jars aside.

2. Whip the chilled heavy cream until stiff peaks form using a hand mixer or a stand mixer. Set the whipped cream aside.

3. Beat the cream cheese, sugar, sour cream, lemon juice, and vanilla extract together until smooth and creamy. Make sure to break down any lumps of cream cheese.

4. Using your mixer on low speed or a rubber spatula, fold the whipped cream into the cheesecake filling until combined. Combine gently so the whipped cream doesn’t collapse.

5. Layer a couple of large spoonfuls of filling on top of the graham cracker crust in the jars. Make sure you leave some room for the topping.

6. Chill the cheesecake jars until ready to serve. We found that adding the cherries too early will have the cherry juices seep down into the layers. So we recommend adding the topping when soon when serving. Spoon the dark sweet cherries on top of the no-bake cherry cheesecake jars, then serve. Enjoy! ❤️
