Easy GF Cheesecake

Honestly, we have all been there, the Shavuot meal where there are no desserts we can eat. And it stinks because that’s half the fun!! Here’s a super simple cheesecake recipe that even your gluten loving friends will enjoy.

Gluten Free Cheesecake

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: Shavuot


  • 1 package of GF Pettibar cookies (or the American version would be graham crackers)
  • 1 stick butter melted
  • 2 cups cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Turn on your oven to 180 degrees Celsius


  • Using a food processor crush the cookies into small pieces.
  • Add in about half of the butter- slowly adding in the rest as needed but don't make the crust too buttery. You want it to just stick together.
  • Press the crust into your pan and let sit in the fridge while you make the filling.


  • Add softened cream cheese to your mixer, then add in the sugar.
  • Slowly mix in the eggs one by one but be sure not to over whip.
  • Pour over the crust and bake for 20 ish minutes. You want the cake to be no longer jiggly in the middle and slightly darker on top.
  • Enjoy!


You could also do this in a muffin tin if you wanted to be able to bring a piece with you everywhere you go. I added extra cookie pieces and a thin layer of my favorite chocolate butter cream recipe to make mine extra special!
