Sooo for valentines day i made by bf a kiwi lemon cheesecake. It was my first time trying to make cheesecake and i decided to go for a no bake recipe. I followed the recipe exactly and the texture ended up somewhat soft while the flavor was pretty good. Is that normal or did i do something wrong? My mom actually bakes her cheesecakes and they come out amazing everytime. I am going to do that for his birthday:)

Bonus picture:

Another question, does anyone know of a store where i can get the actual cheesecake tins? The ones with the removable bottoms? I had to make due with what i had in the house, idk if thats part of the problem or what...

Thanks!!

It's called a springform tin and you can buy them from pretty much any kitchenware shop.

Chilled cheesecake is often less firm than baked cheesecake. Unless it was actually runny, that's probably just normal.

Did you mix any of the kiwi into the cheesecake? I think that when you make jello it tells you not to put kiwi or pineapple into it because it won't set up as well. So that could be part of it, but yeah in general a no bake cheesecake is more pudding textured than one you bake.

I recently bought a set of springform pans at WalMart to make my first cheesecake.  Smiley  If you're looking for a denser texture, a baked version is the way to go.

thanks guys! Yeah I had no idea the texture was going to be softer when i picked out that recipe. i will definitely try baking next time!

I put lemon curd in the cheesecake, but i didnt put kiwi in it.

If you're doing a no-bake, it's best to put the fruit on just before serving so the fruit doesn't sweat into the "cake" part too much. Once in a while I get a craving for a no-bake. It's got a bit of a different flavor, brings back childhood memories.
