Tuscan no bake cheescake

Ingredients needed to make the Tuscan version of the no-bake Cheesecake

For the crust:

  • 300 gr of dry biscuits (Digestive brand)
  • 125 gr of melted butter

For the filling:

  • 250 gr of Philadelphia spreadable cheese
  • 50 gr of sugar
  • 250 ml of fresh cream
  • 2 eggs (2 yolks and 2 whites)

For the Top:

  • Strawberries
  • Sugar
  • Red Wine or other Liquor

How to make the tasty no-bake soft cheesecake

First of all melt the butter in a boiler, then let it stand for a few minutes.

To crumble the biscuits, you can use a mixer if you want to be faster or choose the “old way” putting the biscuits within a swatch and squashing them with your hands.

Now, put together the melted butter and the cracker crumbs, pack the mixture into a 22 cm springform pan and place it in the freezer (15 minutes is enough).

Let’s move on to the filling! You will need just 3 bowls:

  • A First with Philadelphia and fresh cream: blend very well
  • A second with yolks and sugar: Blend heavy the yolks and the sugar together until you get a soft cream
  • A third bowl with the withes only: beat the whites using a kneading machine (note: well beaten whites are shiny and compact).


Lastly, put together all the ingredients and keep on blending. When you obtain a homogeneous mixture, put it into the springform pan.

Refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 5/8 hours.

Now it’s time to make the top!

Put the strawberries into a pot and let them heat for little, then add some sugar. Raise the heat and simmer with a cup of liquor (you can choose the one you like more, I recommend red wine, maybe a tuscan Chianti), just a few minutes and it’s ready!
