White Chocolate Cheesecake Pie
An easy no-bake white chocolate cheesecake pie served with fresh berries.
Happy Monday friends!! I hope you all had a great weekend. I took a quick weekend trip to visit my best friend in Virginia this weekend and I am having a wonderful time slowing down, disconnecting and catching up with her. It’s been a while since I did all of the above so it was a treat for both of us!! If only I can remember to do this more often. Life gets so busy and cluttered that visits like these become gems!
I’m still on the road but thought I should share with you this no-bake white chocolate cheesecake pie I made recently as my last summer hooray with berries. It’s one of the easiest and greatest things I’ve made in a while. It all started with this peanut butter chocolate pie from last year. It’s my most requested dessert and I wanted to have another no-bake pie in my reservoir that peanut butter haters (is that even a thing?) will love and can be a summer go-to! Cue in the white chocolate! My love for white chocolate is no secret. I prefer it to ‘real’ chocolate anytime and thought it will be a perfect match for fresh berries in a light pie.
This white chocolate pie is an easy summer no-bake recipe that will become a favorite at any picnic, dinner party or BBQ. It’s made with a toasted macadamia graham cracker crust that is the only bake part but even that is only 10 minutes to get the crust set. If you can’t be bothered with the oven, just freeze the crust to set for 30 minutes to an hour. Once you prepare your crust folks, you will then fill it with a creamy cream cheese white chocolate mousse-like filling that’s the best thing ever!!! White chocolate + cream cheese + a dash of bourbon + total creaminess of being whipped = best pie filling. I’ll just let that combination sink in for a moment.
You still with me? Well top all that with some fresh berries tossed in fresh lemon juice and a dash of almond extract. I’m telling you, this is the no-bake pie you want to be serving your guests this coming weekend or bringing to your host. It will be a hit trust me!
Excuse me as I run to catch my flight back home now!! Make this pie soon and enjoy it before summer is over!!
