This is my favorite easy cheesecake recipe. When I want cheesecake in a flash, I make this no-bake style. I love to share it with friends and family. It's as easy as 1-2-3! Top with additional graham cracker crumbs and whipped topping, if desired.

  • Refrigerate until firm, 2 to 3 hours.

Cook's Notes:

Lemon extract gives a hint of tartness and is optional. I find it complements the vanilla extract. Don't use it if you like plain cheesecake.

An 8-inch crust also works in this recipe.

Any fruit filling can be used in place of strawberry, or top cheesecake with fresh fruit.
