Ice box pies like this cherry cheesecake are the greatest. While I dearly love baking from scratch there are moments there just isn’t enough time or it’s simply too hot to turn on the oven. That’s when I turn to this no bake fluffy cherry cheesecake pie. Ice box pies hold a dear place in my heart as it was one of my Gramma’s favorite pies to have on hand for drop in family. Most often there was blueberry cheesecake sitting in her fridge. As a little girl I was convinced I saw a light beam from heaven shining on her pie each time I opened the door of the fridge. It seemed to be one of the most popular flavors that she made and it disappeared rather quickly.

  1. Hi Melissa,

    I am very new to baking/cooking, even though I am very old. Just haven’t had the opportunity. I’m trying to make your No Bake Fluffy Cherry Cheesecake. My problem is the first item on the list. Should that be 9 ounce or 9 inch? I would like to find a gluten-free version. Thank you.

    1. Hi Maribeth, it is both. A 9 ounce ready made graham cracker crust is larger than a classic premade graham cracker crust. In fact, the actual packaging says you can yield 2 more pieces. It’s perfectly fine to adapt the crust to your dietary needs. You will need at least a 9 inch deep dish pie crust of your liking, to hold the amount of filling in this cheesecake pie.

  2. Thank you, I had lost my recipe. I am writing a cook book for my granddaughters. I am writing it by hand because I treasure the recipes I have that my mother wrote by hand. Thanks again.
