This is the perfect quick fix if you’re craving a delicious piece of cheesecake. I love a no bake dessert because it’s super simple clean up and a no waiting game. This particular one is perfect for entertaining as well because they are individual servings.
In a traditional cheesecake of course you use cream cheese but I wanted to make this double the fun and added marscarpone as well (an Italian cream cheese). I also added a scoop of apricot preserve and let’s just say there was a party in my mouth.
2 cups finely crushed graham crackers
8oz package cream cheese, room temperature
8oz package marscarpone, room temperature
6-8 scoops apricot preserve
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2/3 cups powdered sugar
In a mixing bowl add cream cheese, marscarpone, lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla extract and powdered sugar. Mix for about 2 minutes until everything is well incorporate and smooth.
Take serving cups or bowls and layer some graham crackers then cream cheese filling and a scoop of apricot preserve. Repeat until desired amount.
