➡️ Eager to know how to make the no-bake strawberry cheesecake? The recipe is very tasty and easy to cook, so I wholeheartedly recommend it! Below are listed the steps required to make the no-bake strawberry cheesecake recipe.

Total Time: 2 hours and 45 minutes

1) Prepare the biscuits

Crush the biscuits by hand or by using a food processor until you get very small pieces.

2) Make the cheesecake base

Place butter into a saucepan, melt it on the stove over a medium temperature, pour it over the biscuits, add half the rum, mix the ingredients very well by hand, then place the mixture into the cake tin, press it hard to remove all the air and get a uniform layer, then put the tin in the fridge for 30 minutes.

3) Prepare the filling

In the meantime, place the cream cheese or cottage cheese into a bowl, pour over the condensed milk, lemon juice, and powdered sugar, stir the ingredients very well to combine them thoroughly, then place the mixture over the biscuit base, level it, and place the tin in the fridge for about 2 hours.

4) Complete the strawberry cheesecake

While the tin is in the fridge, wash the strawberries well, remove the green leaves if necessary, and drain them well to remove the water completely, then cut or slice them and place the pieces into a bowl.
Place the strawberry jam into the saucepan, add 1-2 tbsp of lukewarm water and the remaining rum, then heat it up until slightly runny (2-3 minutes.)
Pour the jam mixture over the fresh strawberries and combine them thoroughly, then place the mixture over the cheese layer and serve the cake immediately.
