Without further ado, here are some of Drummond’s best cheesecake recipes, no bake edition.
1. Ree Drummond’s No Bake Spiced Cheesecake
Forget the typical steps of making a cheesecake with this Pioneer Woman. As Drummond said in the episode “Easy and Elegant” of her Food Network show, her No-Bake Spiced Cheesecake involves her “going against the system left and right.”
She adds “warm, tasty spices” to the filling. To promote a smooth texture, she adds some powdered sugar. It helps with “filling consistency because we’re not going to bake this,” Drummond explained.
What sets Drummond’s cheesecake apart from the rest is that the crust doesn’t need to be baked. All she does is combine gingersnap cookies, sugar and butter, according to food network† Then she presses on the bottom of a springform pan.
There is one element that is needed for a successful No-Bake Spiced Cheesecake and that is time. “The only thing to keep in mind is to have the time to chill it,” Drummond said.
2. Ree Drummond’s Best Cheesecake Recipes: No-Bake Lemon Cheesecake
Drummond considers her unbaked lemon cheesecake a “keeper.” She once called it “lemonie magic” on her Facebook page, saying, “No egg in the cheesecake filling and no baking. Just chill time! But we could all use some chill time!”
She combines graham crackers and sugar in a food processor with melted butter to make the crust. After pressing it into the bottom of a pan, she puts it in the freezer to set. Meanwhile, she makes the lemon filling.
Drummond mixes cream cheese, granulated sugar, powdered sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and sour cream. Once it’s combined, she gently folds in the whipped cream for a smooth texture. Finally, she puts the filling on top of the crust and puts it in the fridge overnight.
3. The Pioneer Woman’s White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake
Drummond’s cheesecake recipes continue with this easy no-bake cheesecake. “It’s as beautiful as a photo and best of all, it’s incredibly easy to make,” she said of the dish on The Pioneer Woman†
“This is simple and really impressive and the best part is I don’t even have to turn on the oven,” she explained. The filling is a combination of soft cream cheese, raspberry puree, lemon juice, powdered sugar and melted white chocolate.
As for the crust, it’s another quick concoction of store-bought cookies, sugar, and butter. However, as Drummond shared, soft butter is essential. “This is a no-bake crust, so I’m just going to add softened butter,” she said. “When I bake the crust, I usually put melted butter in it. Just being softened will keep it all together.”
