No Bake Cherry Cheesecake is an easy layered dessert made with a graham cracker crust, no bake cheesecake filling, and topped with cherry pie filling.
It is no secret that I am a huge fan of no-bake desserts like lemon icebox cake, strawberry pie with jello, cookie dough dip, and this delicious cherry icebox cake. They are the perfect dessert to make during hot summer months when the last thing that I want to do is turn on the oven.
Although to be honest I end up making no-bake cakes all year long just because my family enjoys them so much.
No-Bake Cherry Cheesecake Layered Dessert
This amazing cherry cheesecake layered dessert is made using just a few basic ingredients: graham crackers, sugar, butter, cream cheese, Cool Whip, powdered sugar, and cherry pie filling.

The ingredients are then combined to form the 3 delicious layers of this unbaked cake:
- First, the graham crackers are crushed and mixed with butter and sugar to form the base layer. The graham cracker crust is pressed into an 8 x 8 baking dish and placed in the fridge to chill for 1 hour.
- Next, cream cheese, Cool Whip, and powdered sugar are combined to make the cream cheese filling. The filling is then spread on top of the graham cracker crust.
- Finally, cherry pie filling is spooned on top and the cake is placed in the fridge to chill until serving.
This cherry icebox cake is great for potlucks, barbeques, and other parties. The only thing is, since guests always love it they tend to come back for seconds — so you might want to make a double batch!
