No bake cheesecakes are called "rare cheese cake" in Japan. Rare cheesecakes are chilled and served with fresh fruits or fruit sauces. It's easy to make this dessert at home. Plan ahead -- Cheesecake requires 3 hours refrigeration time.

I cut the recipe in half to make a nice 4 inch tart. Perfect for the two of us. Served it with a mixed berry sauce. I loved the tang of this. Very easy to make. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag
