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.


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.
