My sister is “famous” for her cheesecakes. No matter what your favorite flavor, she could make it. Me? Not so much! But I sure can master a no bake lemon cheesecake bars recipe with vanilla wafer crust!
No Bake Lemon Cheesecake Bars Recipe With Vanilla Wafer Crust
If you love cheesecake, you are not going to believe how easy this recipe is to make. I am not kidding you guys! They are just as rich and creamy as a traditional cheesecake but without the hassle.
The Nilla Wafers add a unique flavor we love. Just mix them with some butter, top with the creamy filling, and you have a no brainer dessert!
Easy And Scrumptious
This recipe is so stinking easy to make! It takes 10 minutes to whip everything together. And if you don’t like lemon, just use another flavor of Jello!
We have made lime, strawberry, orange and cherry (which is to die for!!) No matter what flavor you make, this recipe is scrumptious!
