Sugary & Buttery - Cherry and Pistachio Layered Cheesecake

Summertime is cheesecake time. Shall I say no-bake cheesecake time! No hot oven, the fridge will do the work for you and you get to enjoy a cool sweet treat at anytime. It is so genius that I already made 3 no-bake cheesecakes in the last 6 weeks (more will be up on the blog soon!). One of them is this beautifully layered cherry pistachio cheesecake on top of a thick crust of graham crackers.

The idea of layering cheesecakes is so intriguing not only since it looks so pretty, but because you can combine any flavors and give your cake even more character and taste. How about dark and white chocolate? Strawberry and vanilla? Lemon and blueberry? The list of possibilities is endless! I made this Roasted Strawberry and White Chocolate Layer Cheesecake last year, so good.  This time I went with cherry and pistachio. Just as pistachio teams up perfectly with cranberries during the winter season, it goes wonderfully with cherries in the summer!

    This is beautiful! I love any no-bake desserts in the summer, I never feel like turning the oven on. I might have to try it with raspberry and almond. Thanks for the lovely recipe.
