This no bake pull apart berry cheesecake recipe can be prepared for any summer gathering, whether it be a simple family barbecue or July 4th holiday. This strawberry cheesecake recipe includes ingredients that everyone adores like cream cheese and fresh berries, and is no bake, meaning that you don’t have to heat up your kitchen during the summer weather. The luscious cream cheese layer is just a matter of whipping cream cheese with sugar and whipping cream until it is very fluffy and creamy, which make a delicious icing layer in the slab dessert. This dessert also includes the red of fresh strawberries and blue of blueberries making it a festive dessert to commemorate the American flag.

This no bake cheesecake recipe isn’t a full-on cheesecake because it involves fluffy layers of store-bought Hawaiian rolls that the cream cheese component is spread over. For those unfamiliar with the satisfying Hawaiian roll, they are a sweet and savory roll including pineapple juice, butter, and yeast, which makes it a suitable option in both savory and dessert recipes. Hawaiian rolls work just as well as a dinner roll or the basis for a burger as it does in this cake recipe. In the case of this cake recipe from the ‘Mom on Timeout’ recipe blog, the Hawaiian rolls are store-bought meaning that you just have to prepare the berries, cheesecake filling, and whipped cream topping, but if you are extra ambitious, you could try making your Hawaiian rolls as well. Either way, this red, white and blue dessert recipe will be a crowd pleaser wherever you serve it.

Desserts containing fresh strawberries are all the rage when it is strawberry season, so if you find yourself with a large amount of freshly picked strawberries on hand, consider making this dessert. As with any easy dessert, it relies on the best possible ingredients for the best results. You will want to make sure you are getting your berries from local farmers so that you can ensure the berries were ripened on the plant rather than during transportation from another part of the world. The taste of the berries will be that much more robust making your cake recipe taste even more amazing than it could. If it happens that you can’t find local berries, however, you could purchase imported ones in a pinch. Simply toss them with some granulated sugar, which will bring out the natural sweetness in the strawberries and help bring out their juiciness.


This strawberry dessert recipe has everything you would want in a dessert; fluffy cake layers, whipped cream cheese, cream and fresh berries. Trish, who developed this recipe grants two options for the whipped cream layer, store-bought whipped topping or homemade whipped cream. The whipped topping is a good idea if you need to make your dessert ahead of time since it will hold up much better than cream you have whipped yourself. If you enjoy the flavor of natural cream, however, the homemade whipped cream recipe may appeal to you.
