Jill's Favorite Cheesecake


This week on 19 Kids and Counting, Jill Dillard made no bake cheesecake for her mother-in-law, Cathy. The recipe she used is a Duggar family favorite and is simple to make. The Duggars call it Allie's No Bake Cheesecake.

Ingredients
2 package cream cheese (12 oz. total)
1 c. powdered sugar
8 oz. Cool Whip™

Directions
Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar together, and fold in Cool Whip™. The mixture will fill 24 cupcakes with a vanilla wafer in the bottom, 1 heaping gram cracker crust, or 2 thin gram cracker crusts.

  3. This sounds delicious!

    A healthy version is to whip 2 cups of whipping cream with a bit of sugar and vanilla, beating it until thick but not butter. This takes all of five minutes and leaves out all of the chemicals in Cool Whip.

  9. I saw the pic of the cheesecake Jill made and it looked yummy!! It had fresh strawberries. My question is did she mix the strawberries with a glaze or something? The topping looked so good!! Please let me know. I want to make this as soon as possible.

  12. I make this with 3 pkgs of cream cheese, 3/4 c powdered sugar and blend, then I make my own whip cream w/heavy cream, vanilla & 2TBS sugar to yield about 1 1/2 cups when done, and fold into cream cheese mixture. Takes more like real cheesecake, less like cheesecake FLUFF. Then add fresh fruit or fruit topping, and refrigerate for 3 hours.

  14. Looks really easy to make but is it 12 oz total or two 12 oz packages. Our cream cheese comes in 8 oz blocks. 12 oz would be one and a half packages of cream cheese.

  17. Lily and Ellie,
    Do you know if the strawberries were mixed with a glaze? It didn't look like just fresh strawberries, perhaps she made her own glaze. Thanks.

  18. How many Strawberries did Jill use? It doesn't say on any of the recipes or on the show went she made the two pies for her MIL, thanks......

  19. A great addition is a 16 or 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple (drained) added to the filling ingredients. For the pie crust, I prefer vanilla wafer pie crusts.
