This No Bake Lemon Bliss Cheesecake is made with a mouthwatering crust made from crushed lemon crème filled cookies mixed with melted butter and pressed into the bottom of a springform pan. It's then filled with a luscious whipped no-cook lemon cheesecake filling. Add another layer of lemon cream filled cookies and the only thing left to do is the chilling. Just before serving, decorate the top with cookies and whipped cream then sprinkle with fresh lemon zest and grated white chocolate for the crowning touch. It's simple to make and blissful to eat.
Easy No Bake Lemon Bliss Cheesecake Recipe
This no-bake cheesecake has a lighter texture than a traditional baked cheesecake. It's creamy and almost mousse-like in texture giving it a pleasing mouth feel. Lemon is one of those "happy" flavors that remind me of warm days filled with sunshine. I admit, I'm a bit of a sunshine girl and prefer warm weather, even super hot days, to the gray days of winter. So, it's not unusual for me to bake or make something sweet and lemony on a snowy day just to remind myself of the time of year that I love.

I want to do a 9X13 pan. Do I just double ingredients?
I haven't tested this recipe that size but, yes, likely you would need to at least increase by 1 1/2 our double the amounts. It should be good cut into squares, also. If you try it come back and let us know how it goes.
What can I use in the place of the Lemon Pie Filling? We do not have it here (South Africa. They use Lemon Curd in many recipes & I wondered if that would work.
I think Lemon curd would be a great substitute.
Man was this good!!! For the topping I JUST MIXED A LITTLE FRESH LEMON JUICE WITH THE COOLWHIP.
Oh great, I'm so happy you enjoyed this one!
