No Bake Blackberry Cheesecake

I’ve made regular blackberry cheesecake before, but this summer is the first time that I’ve tried a no bake version. I’m so glad that I did, it’s creamy and delicious, but yet so easy to make, it has quickly become a new family favorite.

My parents are visiting us for a few days here in Carlisle, MA on their way home to Columbia, MD from their trip to St. John, NB and Bar Harbor, ME. It’s my dad’s birthday, so I thought I’d whip up our new favorite No Bake Blackberry Cheesecake. Happy Birthday Dad!

Blackberries are a favorite fruit in our house, we have our own blackberry bushes and the kids love to eat them straight off the bushes.

Another thing we all love is our homemade blackberry preserves, which my husband cans every summer. We give them as gifts to our family, friends, neighbors, the kids’ teachers and bus drivers, but we still always end up with a ton of jars.

This No Bake Blackberry Cheesecake is a delicious way to make use of our extra blackberry preserves. Use any blackberry preserves that you like or substitute another type of fruit preserves such as strawberry or raspberry.
