No-Bake Gingerbread Cheesecake

  • 30 mins
  • 18 ingredients
  • walnuts
  • Moderate


  • Filling
  • 2 blocks cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground clove
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Topping
  • 1/3 cup Diamond of California Finely Diced Walnuts
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • gingerbread men or gingersnap cookies

The Steps

  1. Make the filling: In a mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth. Add in the remaining ingredients except for the heavy whipping cream. Beat to combine. 
  2. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream until you get stiff peaks. Gently fold the whipped cream into the gingerbread cream cheese mixture. Let chill for at least 3 hours to set and thicken. Chill overnight for best results. 
  3. Assemble: Once the filling has chilled, add to your Diamond Nuts Walnut Pie Crust. Use a rubber or offset metal spatula to smooth out the top. Finely chop the shelled walnuts until they are in small pieces. You can also add the walnuts to a plastic bag and crush them with a heavy spoon or measuring cup to create small pieces. Sprinkle the crushed walnuts around the border of the cheesecake. 
  4. Make the whipped cream topping: In a mixing bowl with tall sides, beat the heavy whipping cream with vanilla and sugar until you get medium peaks. Dollop the whipped cream on top of the cheesecake or use a piping bag to pipe the whipped cream around the border of the cheesecake. Dust with cinnamon.
  5. Optional: Top your cheesecake with festive cookies like mini gingerbread men or gingersnap cookies for a festive touch.
