Every baking enthusiast should learn how to make a scrumptious cheesecake. While I love variations like lemon or ginger, there's nothing like a slice of decadent and creamy vanilla cheesecake. During the Summer, look to a reliable no-bake recipe like this one. There's no eggs, which means you won't have to turn on the oven and heat up the kitchen. It does need fridge time, so get started a day before you want to serve it. Cheesecake makes a wonderful potluck dessert because you can transport it inside a cake box. Remove the springform pan just before serving. Read on for the easy technique to delectable no-bake cheesecake.
