This No Bake Philadelphia Cheesecake is smooth, velvety, and perfect for satisfying your cheesecake cravings. Topped with yummy cherry pie filling, you can whip up this easy-to-make recipe in no time.


  • 1 9-inch graham cracker crust (Homemade graham cracker crust recipe is in the FAQ section)
  • 3/4 cup + 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 8 oz package of Philadelphia cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 8 ounces heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sour cream.
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Optional: topping of choice


  1. In a large mixing bowl, add room temperature cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and sour cream. Mix them together on low speed using a hand mixer until they are well combined and no cream cheese lumps remain. Set aside.
  2. Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer, whip the heavy whipping cream into stiff peaks (about 4–5 minutes.) Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
  3. Add the cheesecake mixture to the pie crust and spread it evenly with a spatula.
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate the pie for 8 hours or, even better, overnight before serving it with your favorite toppings.
