Why Strawberry Cheesecake Is Best as a No Bake

Fresh strawberries (and peaches) are one of my favorite parts of summer.  Berries are my go-to snack year round but even more so in the summer when they’re in season and fresh & ripe.

When I have dessert it’s most often cheesecake (chocolate is my second choice).  I love a good rich easy cheesecake recipe and this definitely fits the bill!  To make it even better, this recipe is completely no bake and delicious (I think I’ve made it about a million times).

I’ve made both baked strawberry cheesecake and strawberry cheesecake cupcakes but this is even easier because no oven is required. Any recipe that doesn’t require baking yet can produce such a rich flavorful dessert is a double thumbs up in my book.  Since the strawberries aren’t baked, you can taste the fresh and juicy flavor of summer.

How to Make Glaze for Strawberries

Once you learn how to make a glaze for fresh strawberries, you’ll not only put it on cheesecake, you’ll add it to cakes and puddings too!

Glazed strawberries are versatile (and you can add other berries into this mixture if you’d like) and they’re perfect to top trifles, parfaits and on top of my Strawberries & Cream Pie.  I love the sweetness of a sauce or glaze but I also enjoy being able to taste the fresh flavor of summer strawberries in this dessert.

Not only that but adding in the glaze makes this dessert SO pretty, the berries just glisten and shine!

If you’re looking for the perfect make-ahead no bake dessert, look no further!  This Strawberry Cheesecake Pie is simply delicious and pretty much everyone LOVES it!

  1. Husband and I LOVED this pie. The cheesecake part is so light and fluffy. The lemon really adds great flavor. It was quick and super easy to make. This will be my go to pie for the summer.

  2. This has been a big hit whenever I make it!!  I have had many requests!  It is really easy to make also so it’s a win-win, I rate it 6 stars out of 5

  3. This was amazing! I’ve always wanted to learn to make a cheesecake but it always seemed so difficult until I tried this recipe. I just bought the graham cracker crust, and doubled up on the cheesecake measurements but kept the same measurements for the glaze and and it all fit perfectly in the crust. Was a big winner in my house. 

  4. Hi there, my daughter picked this recipe out as her birthday cake (pie) lol. I am wondering if it is possible to double it, and instead of using 2 round cake pans, just put it altogether in a 9X13X2 baking pan (I have a recipe for homemade graham cracker crust no bake so there’s no issue there).

  5. This looks amazing. I’m going to try this recipe out but wanted to know first whether you found there’s any grittiness from the texture of the sugar as this is a no bake cheesecake? Just wondered… thanks xo

  6. I made this recipe and what I like about the strawberry cheesecake pie, was that it was fast and easy to make. Also, this pie did not last two days!! And most of all my husband really love it!! I passed this recipe to my daughter and told her to give it a try. thanks again for this great dessert!!

  7. Looks amazing! I love baking and cooking! I’m always trying to find new recipes.. It doesn’t give directions on how to make your delicious no bake strawberry cheesecake.. I would love to have it so I can try it out

  8. This is so gorgeous, Holly! I love that it’s no-bake, the best kind of dessert in the summer especially!
