You want to pull out all the stops with a creamy, dreamy cheesecake. But you don’t want to fuss with a water bath…or turning on the oven at all, for that matter. Pastry chef and author of The Fearless Baker Erin McDowell’s no-bake key lime cheesecake checks all the boxes: With a press-in crust and easy filling, you’ll hardly have to lift a finger to reach dessert bliss.
“Somewhere between a cheesecake and a key lime pie,” McDowell says, “is this super-easy cheesecake. With tons of key lime flavor and a classic graham-cracker crust, it’s great to make in the summer when it’s too hot to turn on the oven,because it tastes refreshing and is incredibly easy to make.”
“It’s also easy to unmold and slice,” she continues, “so it looks fancy—like a traditional cheesecake—without having to use the oven or mess with a water bath.” That, friends, is music to our ears.
The only difficult part? Waiting for it to be ready to eat.
