Vanilla cheesecake in a glass

A no bake cheesecake thats creamy and delicately flavoured with vanilla. This follows the same principles and method of traditional cheesecake but is a little more of a fancy presentation. Great for date nights, Birthdays, Mothers day or just as a treat at the end of lockdown. Who doesn't like a little treat? This is so easy to do and so is a great one for the children to try their hands at as it's no bake, They may just need a bit of help with the melted butter. You will definitely get an oooh when you present this as I was told by my family it looked restaurant quality. The step by step guide will help you to recreate this at home. Why not give it a try and let us know how you got on in the comments. We love to know what you think of the recipes
