Absolutely No Bake Cheesecake

Last weekend my oven stopped working. Maintenance had to order a part for it so the cheesecake I planned on making for Labor Day was a no go. NOT HAPPY!

I'm literally starving for cheese cake... So I made this recipe today!! It's not a "traditional" cheesecake... but it's close enough to satisfy me for now LOL!

Absolutely No Bake Upside-Down Cheesecake

  • 16 oz softened cream cheese
  • 1 can sweetened condensed evaporated milk
  • 1 sm package of vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 c powdered sugar **OPTIONAL**
  • 2 cups of your DRY favorite cookies (no cremes, fillings, etc) crushed
  • 3 tbsp butter
  1. Blend cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk on high for 2-3 minutes until smooth and creamy.
  2. Stir pudding mix into milk until mixed and add into cream cheese mixture, blending again until smooth.
  3. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!! Stick your finger in the mix (LOL!) and taste for sweetness. If you want it a little sweeter, blend in the 1/3 powdered sugar.
  4. Refrigerate 1-3 hours until it firms up.
  5. Meanwhile, in a non-stick skillet, melt butter and stir in cookie crumbs, cooking over medium heat until crispy and dry (like a crumbled pie crust...IF YOU HAVE AN OVEN you can press this into a pie crust before instead of heating and bake at 35o for 15-20 minutes.)
  6. Serve cheese cake filling with crumbs spooned over.
