Thank you for stopping by and checking out this delicious No-Bake Cheesecake recipe.
Why is this the best No Bake Cheesecake? It has a delicious cookie crust layered with a praline sauce. The cheesecake is served with additional praline sauce and homemade whipped cream. It is an amazing No Bake Cheesecake.
What inspired me to create this cheesecake?
My favorite cheesecake is a creamy light and fluffy cheesecake from Copeland’s. They have delicious baked cheesecakes with fantastic topping like banana foster, praline, and more but I love their no-bake cheesecake. Copeland’s no-bake cheesecake has changed its name over the years. I know over twenty years ago when I first started ordering this cheesecake it was called Al and Jen’s cheesecake. Now, I am not even sure what they call it now. Simply ask for the fantastic light and fluffy no-bake cheesecake.
Best Praline No Bake Cheesecake
You probably guessed it, Copeland’s. We discovered them about 25 years. They serve traditional New Orleans Cajun Creole food kicked up. It has amazing flavors and is always delicious. I think they not only have mouth watering food but the best desserts too. Most of their restaurants are located in Louisiana, but they do have restaurants in Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas. You can check them out here. I hope you get a chance to try their food one day.
How I make my Praline No Bake Cheesecake similar to Copeland’s?
I add a pecan cookie crust to a ten-inch cheesecake pan. Next, I added a praline sauce that I removed from the stove when it started to boil so it would not get as hard as pralines. I topped that off with five packs of cream cheese mixed with sugar and vanilla then folded in whipped heavy cream. Folding the whipped heavy cream into the cheesecake makes it extremely light and super fluffy. I then refrigerated this Praline No Bake Cheesecake for at least a day. To serve this special cheesecake, I make some additional praline sauce and homemade whipped heavy cream to top it off. It turns out beautiful every time. It is easy to make but requires time for it to firm up in the refrigerator.
