No-Bake Apple Cider Cheesecake - Mother Thyme

There is nothing better than fresh apple cider in the fall.  On a beautiful fall day, I love to enjoy a glass while playing outside with the kids.  And on a cool night, sipping a cup of hot apple cider is a great way to end the day.

I was enjoying a cup of hot apple cider one night shortly after I shared my No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake that I came up with this recipe.  I had some packets of Spiced Apple Cider drink mix on hand from my Caramel Apple Cider Snickerdoodles, and I thought it would great in a creamy cheesecake. 

Don’t get me wrong, I love to bake cheesecakes but when time is tight or you need to make a quick dessert, a no-bake cheesecake is a great alternative.  You only need 7 ingredients to make this, yes 7.  Hello easy!  I like to use cool whip for my no-bake cheesecakes.  It adds a great creamy texture to it.  To serve, I like to top the cheesecake with apple pie filling or even drizzle with caramel sauce.  This is an easy dessert to make for whatever the occasion may be.  

Variations

  • Make apple cider cheesecake filling and layer it in a parfait with graham cracker crumbs, apple pie filling and/or granola.
  • Make a graham crust in a 8″ square baking pan. Top with filling and let set. Cut into squares for cheesecake bars.
  • Place apple cider cheesecake filling in thawed phyllo cups for one bite desserts. Great for holiday entertaining.
  • Place graham cracker crumbs in the bottom of pretty serving glasses. Top with filling and let set in the refrigerator for a few hours. Top with cool whip for single serve desserts.

    1. I’m sorry, there is no applesauce in this recipe. When I entered in the recipe, I glanced at one of my test recipes that had applesauce in it. I have updated the recipe to reflect the change. Thanks for catching that!
