It's been awhile since I joined up with other amazing bloggers for the 30 Day Challenge where as a group we decide on a particular theme for the month then we come up with a recipe that features that theme.     I am excited to be part of the challenge for the month of July and I especially love our foodie theme --- NO BAKE DESSERTS! What else could you want for summer but desserts that don't require turning on the oven!!! Below you will find the link to recipes from our blogger friends and hope you check them all out.

Because I got too excited about the theme, I actually made 3 no bake desserts for the challenge. Can you believe that? After loving them all (and perhaps gaining a pound or 2!) I couldn't make up my mind which one to submit. They were all so good, at least as far I am concerned, so I asked for some help in deciding which one to put forth. I made a little poll on our Facebook page and asked our followers which one they would choose. This No Bake Strawberry and White Chocolate Cheesecake Pie won the most votes and I was glad this was chosen, too. Don't worry the other 2 should come out on the blog pretty soon!

I actually made 2 batches of this Strawberry Pie so you can be certain it's been tried and tested at least twice. But as you may notice, the first batch (first 2 photos above) look darker or redder than the 3rd photo. Don't worry, they are exactly the same recipe but the glaze used was not the same. In the first 2 photos I used a dark raspberry preserve while in the 3rd photo I used a lighter colored strawberry preserve. Either way and whichever jam or preserve you use for the glaze, it would be delicious, I promise! Here's a close-up of a slice of this delectable pie. Enjoy!

No Bake Strawberry and White Chocolate Cheesecake Pie

Glazed fresh and juicy strawberries and luscious white chocolate cheesecake make up this ultimate summer pie! NO BAKE, easy and delicious recipe that will make everyone happy!

Ingredients

  • 1 Store bought or Homemade Graham Cracker Pie Crust
  • 6-7 oz good quality White Chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 3 Tablespoons, unsalted Butter
  • 1 (8-ounce) package Cream Cheese, room temperature (softened)
  • 1/4 cup caster or super-fine white Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Heavy (or whipping) Cream
  • 5 Tablespoons Strawberry or Raspberry Jam or Preserve, divided
  • 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 pint Strawberries, cleaned, top removed and halved
  • 1 Tablespoon Maple, Honey or Agave syrup

Instructions

  1. If using a homemade graham cracker crust, prepare it ahead and refrigerate while making the rest of the pie. Here's a recipe for homemade graham cracker crust that you can follow, if you wish.
  2. In low heat, melt the butter with the white chocolate. Stir frequently until well blended and smooth. Set aside to cool.
  3. In an electric mixer, beat the softened cream cheese, heavy cream and sugar until smooth, roughly 3-4 minutes. Add the vanilla extract and 3 tablespoons Strawberry or Raspberry Jam. Mix just until blended. Stir the cooled chocolate mixture into the cream mixture until smooth. Pour the mixture into the prepared crust. Refrigerate until fully set. This can be made 2 days ahead and maybe frozen at this point. Thaw the cheesecake thoroughly before you add the sliced strawberries.
  4. Neatly arrange the slice strawberries on top of the cheesecake. Combine the remaining jam with the maple syrup (or your sweetener of choice) in a small skillet or pan and warm up on low heat on the stove top. Using a pastry brush, generously glaze the strawberries with the warmed up jam. Serve immediately or continue to refrigerate.
Yield: 10-12 Servings
Prep Time: 00 hrs. 20 mins.

  1. Those strawberries look so juicy and delicious. I think this would be perfect for a BBQ - we just need the sunny weather here to be able to have one.
