Ingredients: For the Crust:

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

For the Cheesecake Filling:

  • 24 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

For the Topping (optional):

  • Fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries) or canned pie filling

Step by Step:

  1. Begin by preparing the crust. In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and granulated sugar. Mix until the crumbs are evenly coated with butter and have a sandy texture.
  2. Press the graham cracker mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan, creating an even layer that covers the entire base. Use the back of a spoon or the bottom of a glass to achieve a compact and smooth crust. Place the pan in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.
  3. In a separate large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until it becomes smooth and creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar and continue to beat until the mixture is well combined and silky.
  4. Stir in the pure vanilla extract, infusing the filling with its warm and comforting aroma.
  5. In another mixing bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture, ensuring a light and airy consistency.
  6. Retrieve the springform pan from the refrigerator and carefully pour the cheesecake filling over the chilled crust, spreading it out evenly with a spatula.
  7. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and let the cheesecake chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or ideally overnight. This resting period allows the flavors to meld and the filling to set to perfection.
  8. When you’re ready to serve, remove the sides of the springform pan and transfer the cheesecake to a serving platter.
  9. Optionally, you can add a touch of sweetness and color to your cheesecake by topping it with fresh berries or a canned pie filling of your choice.


Now that you’ve created a mouthwatering No-Bake Classic Woolworth Cheesecake, it’s time to relish in the timeless flavors of this creamy delicacy.
