NO BAKE CHEESECAKE PRALINE SAUCE

This No Bake Cheesecake is the best New Orleans dessert.  It has a delicious cookie crust layered with praline sauce.  Next, it includes a creamy no-bake cheesecake.

To top off this no-bake cheesecake, additional praline sauce, and homemade whipped cream is added.  It is easy to make and fantastic.

What inspired me to create this cheesecake?

My favorite cheesecake is creamy light and fluffy cheesecake from Copeland’s.  They have deliciously 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.  Just ask for the fantastic light and fluffy no-bake cheesecake.

Best Praline No Bake Cheesecake

You probably guessed it, Copeland’s.  We discovered Copeland’s about 25 years.  They serve traditional New Orleans Cajun-Creole food kicked up.  It has fantastic flavors and is always delicious.  I think they not only have mouth-watering food but the best desserts too.  Most of their restaurants are 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 incredibly light and super fluffy.

Refrigerate Over Night

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.

    • Christie,

      Thank you for stopping by Recipes For Our Daily Bread and leaving me a comment. Hopefully, I can answer your question. The whipped topping is not the frozen stuff. It is heavy cream that has been whipped. YES, you do need 16 ounces that has been whipped in the actual cheesecake. The additional two cups is used as a topping. It is optional. I will be watching my comments today if you need any more help.
      HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
      Thank you again for all your support!!

  2. This looks amazing! I love that not everyone makes something ‘praline’ so it has a little uniqueness. 🙂 Thanks for sharing at FTAF, hope to see you back!
