Want an easy no bake dessert that tastes
great? Then you'll want to try this delicious no bake Cranberry Cream Cheese Tart
that is dressed for the holiday season. It starts with a graham cracker crumb
crust that includes spicy ginger cookies. Once the crust has chilled, we
fill it with a no bake, creamy smooth cheesecake-like filling. And the finishing touch is a sweet and tangy
This is such an easy dessert to put together as it uses a graham cracker crumb
crust which is, by far, the simplest of all the pie crusts. If you
have problems with getting the right crust consistency, there is a test to see if
you have the right amount of crumbs to melted butter. Once you have
mixed the ingredients together, squeeze some in your fist and if they
hold together, you have the perfect crust. To liven up the flavor of
the crust with a subtle ginger taste, I have added some crushed ginger
cookies along with the graham cracker crumbs. You can use either
homemade or store bought ginger cookies. Once the crust is made
and left to chill in the refrigerator, the next step is to simply mix the
filling ingredients together. The filling is then poured into the
crust, covered, and left to chill in the refrigerator several hours or
While this tart is excellent with a medley of fresh berries,
lovely with a Cranberry Raspberry
Sauce. This sauce has a sweet and tangy flavor and is made by cooking
fresh (or frozen) cranberries and either fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries with sugar and a little lemon or orange zest. If
you like you can also add a splash of cherry brandy (Kirschwasser or
Kirsch). The thickness of the sauce depends on how long it's cooked. And
keep in mind that the sauce does thicken as it cools. I like to serve the sauce
separate, alongside the tart, so everyone can have as much, or as
little, as they like. If you have leftover sauce, it's great spread
of scones, biscuits, or toast. Or you can even use it to fill tart shells
for these Jam Tarts.
