No Bake Peach Cheesecake

Last week I was invited by my best friend for a get together with our friends at her house and guess what …..I had to bring something sweet 🙂 .  Truth to be told, as much as I love baking, when it’s as hot as these days, turning the oven on is the last thing on my mind. But, I had to do something for the party, therefore I looked for  a no-bake alternative. That’s how I ended up making this no-bake peach cheesecake.  It turned out to look amazing and it was so good and refreshing, not to say that all of my friends loved it !

  2. Mix the mascarpone cheese, condensed milk, sugar,  cream cheese, vanilla, lemon zest and a pinch of salt until smooth.
  3. Stir in the melted gelatin then fold in the whipped cream.
  4. Pour the cream cheese filling over the crust and place in the fridge for a few hours.

Peach Topping:

  1. Combine the peach slices, sugar, mint leaves and cinnamon in a saucepan and place aside for 30 minutes.
  2. Bloom the gelatin in cold water for 10 minutes.
  3. Place the peach mixture over medium flame and cook for 10-15 minutes until softened. Avoid mixing in while cooking as it will destroy the peach slices.
  4. Add the gelatin and allow to cool. Remove the mint leaves and cinnamon stick.
  5. Pour the cooled topping over the cheesecake and place back in the fridge for a few hours.

Enjoy !
