Rare Cheesecake
No bake cheesecakes are called "rare cheese cake" in Japan. It is a soft type of cheesecake, and usually gelatin is used to harden the filling. Rare cheesecakes are chilled and served with fresh fruits or fruit sauces. It's easy to make this dessert at home.


  • 3/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup and 2 Tbsps plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp gelatine powder
  • 1/4 cup water
  • For Crust: 1 cup crushed graham crackers & 3 Tbsp. butter & 1 Tbsp. sugar


Mix gelatine powder and water in a small cup and set aside. Combine crushed graham crackers, melted butter, and sugar in a bowl. Press the crumbs into the bottom of a round cake pan (8 inch). Stir cream cheese in a bowl until soften. Heat water and gelatine mixture in the microwave until becomes liquid. Add yogurt, sugar, lemon juice, and gelatine into softened cream cheese and mix well. Pour the filling into the crust and spread evenly. Refrigerate the cake for 3 hours, or until set. Serve with your favorite fruits, fruit sauce, or jam.

I followed some other recipes for no-bake cheesecake and they didn't usually turn out the way I expected but this one is different. Easy and delicious; my colleagues thought I bought it from a store. One has even asked me to make this for her to bring to a potluck party on New Year's eve. I am so proud. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
