Delicious Polish cheesecake without baking

Polish cheesecake - Enjoy!

Our daughter loves jelly, and we love Polish cheesecake. It’s hard to make cheesecake while camping unless there is no baking!  This recipe is a perfect solution when you want something sweet and you don’t have baking facilities.

All components of the recipe are easy to make, and the final cheesecake is delicious!

Polish cheesecake - Ingredients

1. Use a fork to crush cookies into cookie crumbs. Custard cookies are not the best option, but we were in the middle of nowhere and had to use what we had on hand.

You have to admit it was a bit of cheating with this recipe, but we always have to adjust to the conditions we are currently in.

There is always a choice between ‘not having’ an awesome, homemade cheesecake or making a camping cheesecake which is delicious too.

This time we were in Weipa Caravan Park, and we wanted to have something sweet after we ate our camping hot dogs we prepared earlier.
