No Bake Tiramisu Cheesecake

It’s beginning to get hot here and I am loving it. Love the sun when it’s shining bright till 8 pm. It makes me feel like there are more than 24 hours in a day! And with so much going on in my life, I really need those extra hours. Days are flying with packing stuff and spending time with family but amidst all the craziness, I take out some time to make desserts. Life becomes boring if there isn’t some dessert involved on a regular basis. Isn’t it? No bake cheesecakes have been always been one of my favorite desserts because they are just so easy to make. And what makes them even better is that you can make then way ahead of time. It’s a win-win situation!

Individual No Bake Tiramisu Cheesecake

Tiramisu is one of my favorite desserts and so this time around I thought of giving it a twist and made these individual no bake tiramisu cheesecake. I did make few changes in this tiramisu cheesecake, depending on what ingredients were available in my pantry.

1. I have used cream cheese in this recipe. Mascarpone cheese is used in Tiramisu traditionally but it is not something that I always have in my refrigerator. But cream cheese is something I always have!

2. There’s no tiramisu without some alcohol in it but we are not too fond of alcoholic drinks and almost never have any in our home. That’s why I used imitation rum extract. I loved the taste!

3. The cookies, yes ladyfingers are used in tiramisu. I used nilla wafers here.

So in spite of these 3 changes, this no bake tiramisu cheesecake was just wonderful if I may say so. I really liked the fact that it tasted so much like regular Tiramisu in spite of me not using a lot of traditional ingredients in this recipe. Next time you plan an Italian dinner or crave for Tiramisu, make these individual no bake tiramisu cheesecake. It’s really super simple to make and tastes amazing. I highly recommend chilling it for 3-4 hours before serving, overnight works even better.

I used 2 big glasses here. This recipe will easily serve up to 6 if you use those mini dessert glasses.
