We all know when it’s the thick of summer, the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven. However, one of my favorite desserts, EVER, is a cheesecake. So what is a girl to do? Make these no bake pb&j cheesecakes of course.

This riff off of a classic pb&j sandwich is the perfect, creamy treat for a hot summer day. Eat one or two for a snack, or eat a bunch cause this recipe is just that darn good! Did I mention it’s also quick and simple, can’t beat that…

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups crushed nilla wafers
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 7 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (or more if you love peanut butter!)
  • 1.5 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 lb cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup jam or strawberry preserves

First, make the no bake crust by tossing the nilla wafer crumbs with sugar, then add the peanut butter. Add in melted butter then mix until combined. Firmly press it into whatever mold/jar you’re using. Set aside.

Next, the cheesecake! In a medium bowl, beat the heavy cream with a hand mixer/stand mixer (or even by hand) until medium peaks form. In a separate bowl, combine the cream cheese, sugar, salt, vanilla extract, and lemon juice to a bowl and beat until smooth. Add cream cheese to heavy whipping cream until they are well blended. Stir in the jam. no-bake peanut butter and jelly cheesecakes | sugarandcloth.comno-bake peanut butter and jelly cheesecakes | sugarandcloth.com

Top off the molds/jars with the cheesecake filling. Refrigerate at least 5 hours. The longer the better! no-bake peanut butter and jelly cheesecakes | sugarandcloth.com

    Thank you for sharing! Cannot wait to try these, look and sound yummy!
    One question….In the recipe I’m thinking it’s the peanut butter that gets combined with the heavy whipping cream? correct?

    Hi Audrey!
    Oops! Thanks for the question! Actually, the peanut butter gets combined with the Nilla wafer crumbs and butter. The whipped cream cheese gets combined with the whipped heavy cream. Good eye! ;) -Nanette
