Ingredients To Make No Bake Peanut Butter Jelly Cheesecakes

1 1/2 cup crushed Nilla wafers — Or any other brand of vanilla wafer cookies. You can also opt for the traditional graham cracker crust.

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

7 tablespoon melted unsalted butter

1/2 cup peanut butter — Or more if you love peanut butter!

1 1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 pound softened cream cheese

1/3 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3/4 cup jam or strawberry preserves

How To Make No Bake Peanut Butter Jelly Cheesecakes:

First, make the no bake crust by tossing the nilla wafer crumbs with sugar.

Then, add in the peanut butter.

Add in melted butter then mix until combined.

Firmly press the mixture into the mold or jar you’re using. Set aside. Note that the serving size really depends on how big you want your cakes to be. 

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.

Top off the molds/jars with the cheesecake filling. I used stainless steel cake molds.

Refrigerate at least 5 hours. The longer the better! 

Optional: Garnish with crushed Nilla wafers or drizzle jam.

  5. 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

    One question….In the recipe I’m thinking it’s the peanut butter that gets combined with the heavy whipping cream? correct?
