No-Bake Gluten-Free Cherry Cheesecakes

These No Bake Gluten Free Cherry Cheesecakes fit perfectly in small Mason jars and are ideal for a spring picnic! These little desserts are delicious and simple and are made with a handful of common ingredients and a couple of special ingredients.

To start, I used Kinnikinnick’s gluten-free S’morables – delicious graham cracker style treats – and crushed them into fine crumbs with some butter. This is the foundation for the cheesecakes. Then I made the cheese cake filling – a classic one with heavy cream, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract (always use real vanilla extract). And lastly, I topped it off with cherry pie filling (make sure it’s gluten-free).

Cherries are perfect for spring or summer, and since we’re right there at the threshold between the two, I thought cherry cheesecake would be best! Feel free to change it up if you prefer a different fruit.
