    As summer meanders its way into our lives, I am having a glorious time thinking of all the wonderfully refreshing and easy desserts I can make.  Sometimes baking in the summer is just not something I look forward too, so still being able to enjoy a fabulous dessert without turning on my oven is such a treat!

    This sweet little cheesecake could not be easier!  With only four ingredients and then a delectable vanilla crust, you really can’t go wrong.

    For my crust, I used vanilla cookies (like Vanilla Oreo’s or Nilla Wafers) that were finely ground.  In total, there was about 3/4 cup of the crumbs, to which I added 2 tablespoons of melted butter.

    Then press into the bottom of a prepared 7-inch springform pan!  Easy peasy.

    The McCormick Strawberry Extract is actually tinted a sweet dusty rose color, so not only will your pie taste like sweet strawberry, but it will look like it too!

    Now, if only to figure out how to bake a two-layer chocolate cake without an oven.

    Yum! I love the convenience of a no-bake dessert…especially during the warm months (which, as you know, equal about 3 in Wisconsin…June, July, and August) 😉

    This recipe sounds really easy, but so delicious! It’s indeed perfect for the summer months, yum!

    I would love this for Mother’s Day! I might just have to make it for myself!

    Can I use real whipping cream instead of whipped topping?

    Beautiful! I love love cheesecake! Pinning this beauty!

    Oh, yeah! This is on my list of “creations.” My family will think I’ve worked alllll day! Smiles!

    I am all about no bake right now!! My house is hot enough without the oven going. This looks so refreshing and delicious. And beautiful as usual!

    This combination has been a favorite for us for a long time! Never thought about putting extract in it before! Lol

    I love how this recipe is easy as well as looks delicious. Can’t wait to make it

    This looks like the best cheesecake in the world. Look how thick and fluffy it is! Amazing!

    This definitely looks like the perfect recipe for when I don’t feel like turning on the oven. Yum!!

    Those cookies look so good and so amazing!!

    Can I use real whipping cream instead of whipped topping? I don’t think that whipped topping is available in the UK

    I can never pass on a slice of Strawberry Cheesecake! Delicious!

    I attempted this recipe. It was good, but my cake was a little on the soft side, it was wobbly. Any idea what’s wrong?

    I went to two local stores and did not find strawberry extract…am thinking of just making a little “strawberry juice” by cutting up some strawberries and sprinkling sugar on them and using the juice that results to flavor this?

    Can I use real whipping cream instead of whipped topping? whipped topping isn’t available in the Australia

    Hey can i make roses with buttercream icing on this cheesecake?

    can you make it with splenda in stead of sugar

    I used 2 Tablespoons ofmy homemade strawberry syrup and real whipped cream to make it healthier.

    Wouldn’t the addition of some chopped fresh strawberries make this better? I don’t really “get” the strawberry flavoring instead of the fresh strawberries.

    I made this cheesecake w/mixed berry whipped cream cheese…skipped the extract. It turned out great. Good berry flavor.
    It’s a keeper!

    Don\'t Pass on Dessert!
