Tips for making a no-bake cheesecake

For smiles all around, make the lightest of all cheesecakes — no-bake cheesecake. Unlike the kind made in the oven, no-bake cheesecake eliminates all risk of being underdone or overdone.

Because this kind is made with gelatin, the cake requires no cooking — only the few minutes needed to dissolve the gelatin. Mellow graham cracker crumbs complement the flavor to perfection.

For an especially handsome appearance, make the cheesecake in a springform pan, or you can use a loaf pan.

Unmold this way: Dip the loaf pan in warm (not hot) water to the depth of its contents. Loosen around the edge with the tip of a paring knife. Place a serving dish on top of the loaf and invert. Shake, holding the serving dish tightly to the loaf. If the cheesecake does not unmold readily, repeat the procedure.
