Rough Days {Recipe: Peaches and Cream No Bake Cheesecake}

Smooth and creamy PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese and fresh, summer peaches are the perfect pair in this Peaches and Cream No Bake Cheesecake Dessert Recipe.

Peaches and Cream Cheesecake Recipe from DineandDish.netNo one likes to have a bad day… but if you are going to have a bad day, it would be a nice coincidence if it happened on National Cheesecake Day (July 30th).

If you follow me on Instagram (and I’d love to have you, by the way) you may have noticed that the Dine & Dish family has hit a little bit of a rough patch this past weekend. What started out as a fun filled day at Grand Falls in Joplin, MO…

…turned into Kelly breaking her leg (tibia and fibula right up by her knee and possibly something wrong with her hip). She’ll be spending the rest of the summer in a full cast, with crutches and a wheelchair. So, bad day? Indeed.

At least she has a good story to go along with it! And at least I had just made this cheesecake to share on National Cheesecake Day. I mean, I don’t condone emotional eating, but if you are going to drown your sorrows, you might as well do it in the best food around, don’t you think?

Cheesecake, especially creamy no-bake cheesecake made with PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, has been my absolute favorite dessert since I was a kid. It was my requested cake at all my birthday parties since I could express an opinion. Had I know there was a National Cheesecake Day when I was a kid, I’m sure I would have convinced my mom to host a cheesecake party. I love cheesecake that much!

This recipe was adapted from a no-bake cheesecake recipe on the Kraft Foods website. If you love cheesecake, make sure you check out their recipe page to find more cheesecake recipes featuring PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese!

  1. You are a great mother and I would have let my kids jump off as well. I remember jumping off cliffs as a youngster and its just a chance you take. Boy does she have a story to tell when she starts back to school.

    Love this cheesecake recipe.

  2. I hate for all of you that such a fun day turned into this mishap but lucky for your sweet girl she has you to take care of her! Poor thing; give her some virtual hugs OK? And I’m sending you some too.

  3. Jumps often go well too, it’s just bad luck. I’m sorry she broke her leg. Fortunately she has your great baking to look forward to. That cheesecake looks delicious!

  4. I still can’t even believe it – poor girl!!! And of course you have an amazing cheesecake waiting for her. You’re still my mom hero!!

  5. If there’s anything that could make a sweet little gal feel better it’s mom’s cheesecake…so sorry about her leg, but the cheesecake really does look so yummy!

  6. Cheesecake is my favorite too and I must try this recipe! So sorry about Kelly’s leg! Hopefully everything is fine with her hip.

    • You will need 2 sleeves of graham crackers–1 was not enough with the amount of butter and sugar used. Using 2 sleeves made the crust perfect!

  7. Oh man, that is no fun at all! She’s lucky to have such a good mom to take care of her and bake her delicious treats like this! Happy National Cheesecake Day :)

  8. I am so sorry to hear about Kelly. That is horrible and I am wishing her the best!!

    And ya for cheesecake!

  9. Poor Kelly! I hope she got to enjoy a whole bunch of this cheesecake. And I hope she recovers quickly!!

  10. Poor baby. That’s a lot of cast to sign when she goes back to school. Good luck mama!

  11. Aw, your poor daughter – hope the rest of summer still holds lots of fun for your family! Love this dessert – nothing beats peaches in the summer.

  12. Poor girl! Sending lots of hugs your way! Loving this dessert, though. Nom nom nom.

  13. Poor Kelly… At least summer is almost over so she won’t have to miss it. And this cheesecake – pure deliciousness!

  14. Oh dear! That is a bad day, indeed! On the upside, I think cheesecake can brighten any day! :)

  15. What a little toughie, though! Look at her grinning with her big old cast on! Yeah girl. You wear that plaster badge of pride.

  16. So sorry your fun adventure ended this way. Hope the healing process is quick, but I do have to say this cheesecake recipe would help make the day end on a better note. Hang in there mama!

  17. Oh my stars that looks so yummy! So sorry to hear about Kelly breaking her leg. She is still a happy smiley girl, plus she can have all her friends sign her cast when she goes back to school. At least if your going to break your leg she has a great story of cliff jumping to go with it.

    Off to pin and add the ingredients to my grocery list!

  18. That peach topping is amazing. It’s calling to me. I don’t blame you at all for telling them they could jump. Sometimes these things just happen.

  19. OH man, I’m SUCH an emotional eater! Sad day, we had a broken arm this summer (our FIRST ER visit), and have had to adjust around it. Leg is SO much tougher! That cheesecake looks amazing.

  20. Oh man!!! So sorry about your sweet girl, Kristen! Praying for a speedy recovery… Your cheesecake looks delicious! Love the fresh peaches! xo
