Simplest No Bake Eggless Cheesecake Recipe Ever

"Julia taught me what it takes to find your way in the world. It's not what I thought it was. I thought it was all about-I don't know, confidence or will or luck. Those are all some good things to have, no question. But there's something else, something that these things grow out of. It's joy."

Ladies & Gentlemen, I present to you the easiest, yummiest, egg free and no bake cheesecake recipe I have ever come across, a recipe that was passed on to me by our lovely cousin Dipti, who I (and now you too) should thank and remember every time you make this gorgeous delight ;)

It takes minutes to understand, minutes to assemble but seconds to be wiped out :)

In Glasses 

Ingredients:

1 250grams pack of Digestive biscuit
Approx 150grams margarine, melted (I used unsalted butter this time around but do not recommend as I think it hardens the biscuit base a bit too much or perhaps I needed to use more butter)
1 300grams pack of Philadelphia cream cheese
1 36grams Dream Whip sachet 
1 pineapple jelly sachet mixed in 1 medium glass of warm water
1 170grams Nestle cream tin 
1 can of strawberry filling/ topping

Yes, it’s all about 1s, all about using up the entire sachet, tin or pack, so there’s no measuring and no left-over ingredients :) You just have to pay a little attention to the measurements when picking up the products.

Ingredients

Directions:

  1. Starting with the biscuit base, grind digestive biscuits and mix with margarine. Set this first layer flat in a serving dish or  individual bowls or wine glasses.
  2. For the second cheesilicious layer, grind together Philadelphia cream cheese, Nestle cream, Dream Whip and jelly mixture. Pour above the biscuit base.
  3. Let this set in the refrigerator for a couple of hours and then spread the strawberry filling over the second layer. Chill again and serve.

Mamtiii you need to make sure you have a strong biscuit base, the next time you make this - use all of the 250gm digestive biscuit pack as base..
