As you may have known, crustless cheesecake is very difficult to find.  Many people love the crunch from the crust with every bite of a cheesecake.  If you plan to order a crustless cheesecake for dessert in a restaurant, just forget it.  Literally, there is none out there.  Because of that, I decided to make my own crustless cheesecake.

I love this dessert recipe so much because having my little one with me in the kitchen playing with food is one of the best things that we both enjoy.  So, making my own no-bake cheesecake it is.  One stone two birds.

You definitely can use this recipe on mini-crusts or regular graham cracker crust.  Step-by-step instructions are shown after the no-bake crustless mini lemon cheesecake recipe.
