No-Bake Cherry Cheesecake Lush
Check out this Easy Cherry Lush! You will find it loaded with a creamy cheesecake layer, then cheesecake pudding, cherry pie filling, and of course.
Okay, have you guys had a lush before? We’ve got a seriously yummy strawberry lush that always gets rave reviews, so it was only natural that we go for round two with a cherry version of our tried-and-true staple.
The key to a lush is that you’ve got a crushed cookie base, a cream cheese filling layer, a cheesecake pudding layer, topped with a fruity topping of your choice here, we went with cherry pie filling and then you top it all off with frozen whipped topping or whipped cream.
1 package vanilla sandwich cookies (approx. 36 cookies), crushed
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
2 (16 oz.) containers frozen whipped topping, divided
2 (3.4 oz.) boxes cheesecake instant pudding mix
3 cups whole milk
1 (21 oz.) can cherry pie filling
1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
Add melted butter and 1/4 teaspoon salt to a large bowl and toss until cookie crumbs are all thoroughly coated.
Pour crumb mixture into a 9×13-inch baking dish and press into an even layer. Place in refrigerator and chill until ready to use.
In a large bowl or mixer, beat cream cheese for 1-2 minutes, or until creamy and smooth, then add in powdered sugar and 1 1/2 cups frozen whipped topping. Beat until just combined, then spread out over chilled crust.
In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, cheesecake pudding mixes, and remaining 1 cup frozen whipped topping. The mixture will thicken.
Carefully spread pudding mixture out over the cream cheese layer, then top with a layer of cherry pie filling.
Gently top with frozen whipped topping, trying not to drag cherry filling through it too much, then refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours, or until set.
When ready to serve, top with chopped pecans.
