Honey-Glazed Cheesecake Recipe Is the No-Bake Sweet Treat You’ve Been Craving

Our graham cracker crust is the perfect base for this treat — so delicious topped with berries.

There’s something about berry season that gets us in the dessert-making mood — those fresh, juicy gems really do make any treat even sweeter. One of our favorites? This Honey-Glazed Cheesecake recipe topped with a packed layer of strawberries. Yum! And since it’s no-bake easy, it’s perfect for making during the warm summer months when no one wants to turn on an oven.

It all starts with a buttery graham cracker crust that’s pressed right into the pan. Over years and years of making cakes in the Woman’s World test kitchen, our pros came up with this clever trick that prevents the crust from being lumpy and uneven. Simply spritz the bottom of a drinking glass with a bit of cooking spray, then use the base to press crumbs in place. The flat surface provides firm, even pressure that ensures uniformly thick results, plus the rounded sides help you reach every nook of the springform pan.
