Easy Cherry Cheesecake with Sugar Cookie Crust

I love to cook, but I don’t always have time to cook. Like many of you: I’m a mom, own my own business and try to still manage to have a bit of a life. Cooking up an elaborate meal or dessert doesn’t always happen. I like easy recipes. That’s why I know you’re going to love this easy cherry cheesecake (plus the super yummy sugar cookie crust).

So with that being said, today I’m sharing a summer dessert idea in the form of easy cherry cheesecake. Nothing says summer than a no-bake cheesecake filling topped with seasonal cherries.

The base of this easy cherry cheesecake is a little outside of the box, I used Betty Crocker’s Sugar Cookie Mix. The sugar cookie mix produces super soft sugar cookies, so I overcooked it a bit to give the crust a bit of a crunch.

I made a super simple cheesecake mixture with cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and a little bit of powdered sugar. Originally I wasn’t going to add the sugar, but I used a little bit to thicken it up a bit.

When it comes to adding the cherry pie filling, let the cheesecake set in the fridge for a few hours first (or until firm). I didn’t do that at first and the pie filling sunk, and that required me to go to the store and get another can – which made me grumpy. So listen to my advice.
