How to Make No Bake Mini Cheesecakes

It’s best to start off with the dairy ingredients at room temperature. They’re just easier to mix that way and can combine better. Whip the cream cheese with vanilla and both brown and white sugar. Add the sweetened condensed milk and then the Cool Whip.

As this creamy mixture chills in the refrigerator you can back the puff pastry bowls in the oven. Brands vary so just follow whatever it says on the packaging. The next step for making no bake mini cherry cheesecake desserts is to scoop some of the chilled creamy mixture into each one. I’d recommend letting the puff pastry cool down first.

Now add some cherry pie filling on top and sprinkle cookie crumbs on top. Keep these individual cheesecakes in the refrigerator until serving. They are best if you add the filling to the shells just before serving else they will get soggy over time.

Cherry Tarts with Puff Pastry Variations

I like this single serve dessert in puff pastry cups but you can also make them in serving glasses without the puff pastry if you want. Not using pre-made puff pastry shells means these really are no bake mini cheesecakes because you don’t have to bake the puff pastry to start with.

If you want to change up the flavour, go ahead and use any kind of pie filling you want. I bet apple pie filling, blueberry pie filling or peach pie filling would work really well in the pre-made puff pastry shells.

The vanilla extract is great with the cherries but feel free to use almond extract instead which also goes really nicely with cherries. For a summertime version you can’t go wrong with a splash of coconut extract (or get decadent and make it coconut rum instead!) Orange liqueur would also be good in these.

Just before serving I like to sift some powdered sugar over the top. It just looks pretty. This is completely optional of course. These no bake mini cherry cheesecake desserts are delicious just as they are too.

Which Pastry Shells are Best?

I love using the Pepperidge Farm pastry shells because they taste good and hold up well with the filling inside. Carefully remove the round top so you can pop it back on top after filling the shell. It’s easy to remove some of the inside layers of the shell with a fork before filling. Take care not to cut through.

How to Serve Cherry Tarts with Puff Pastry

These can be served just as they are but they also make a great festive gift. You can put some on a plate and wrap it with cellophane then decorate with a bow. This would be a cute gift for friends, neighbors or for the kids’ teachers.
