Fourth of July No Bake Cheese Cake

There are many recipes out there for no bake cheese cakes and this one is just great for a fourth of July celebration. I'm showing you Chef John's video as I think the visual aide helps. At least it does me.

Feeds 12 people.

For the crust:
  • 1 1/2 cups finely crushed graham cracker crumbs
  • 6 tbsp. melted butter
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

For the filling:
  • 2 cups (1 pound) cream cheese (I used half regular and half mascarpone)
  • 2 tsp. grated lemon zest
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups cold heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup white sugar

Hope you enjoy making this. I might have to add this to my list of foods to make this week.
