Tips for Making this recipe
Room temperature ingredients. Having ingredients at room temperature makes for a smoother and easier to make the cheesecake filling. If you need to bring the cream cheese to room temperature the easiest way this to cut it into chunks and leave it on a plate on the counter for about 20 minutes.
Don’t skip the chill time. This no bake cheesecake with cherry topping needs time to set in the fridge. I like to make it the night before and then it is good to be enjoyed the next day, but no matter when you make it, this recipe needs a full 3 hours to set in the fridge.
Use an electric hand mixer or stand mixer. It is much easier to mix the ingredients when you are using an electric mixer.

Use a different pie crust. I use a graham cracker crust but you can also use a chocolate cookie crust. If you have a favorite homemade graham cracker crust recipe you can use that as well.
Change p the no Bake Cheesecake topping. You can totally change the pie filling topping on this no bake cheesecake. If you are not a fan of cheery, that’s ok you can change it out for lemon pie filling, blueberry pie filling, or leave off the topping.
