I’m a huge fan of the Philadelphia 3-Step Cheesecake that I posted on the blog a few years ago. It’s one of the first recipes I started making by myself and it’s pretty much the perfect, easy, classic cheesecake recipe. BUT….sometimes, I want cheesecake faster. I don’t want to wait for it to bake and then cool and then chill. You too?? I mean, the chilling of cheesecake is kind of unavoidable, even with no-bake cheesecakes but at least they can chill down faster! And if you stick them in the freezer, you can have cheesecake even faster ;). (I mighttt have done this haha!). Seriously the easiest cheesecake ever and while maybe not quite as good as the Philadelphia 3-Step Cheesecake, it’s really, really good! Enjoy!
