No Bake Cottage Cheese Cheesecake Jars with Fruit Compote Ingredients

  • Graham Crackers: Adds a light, sweet, crunchy texture that you know and love from classic cheesecake.
  • Salted Butter: Adds a bit of flavor and holds the graham crackers together.
  • White Chocolate Chips: Good quality white chocolate gives a sweet, buttery, slightly milky flavor to the cheesecakes.
  • Daisy Cottage Cheese Fruit Singles: The secret ingredient in these delicious cheesecakes. The cottage cheese lightens the cheesecakes and adds a silky, creamy texture that you love in cheesecake. And the fruit compote is the perfect easy fruit topping, available in four delicious flavors.
  • Vanilla Extract: Enhances the flavor of desserts.

Substitutions, Variations, and Tips

  • Animal Crackers, chocolate wafers, or gluten-free graham crackers can be used in place of traditional graham crackers.
  • You can substitute coconut oil for butter, if desired. Note, that coconut oil has a slight coconut flavor which would be delightful if using Daisy Cottage Cheese Pineapple Fruit Singles.
  • A 4oz white chocolate baking bar, chopped into small bits, may be used in place of white chocolate chips.
  • An immersion blender may be used in place of the food processor to create the creamy, light, fluffy cheesecake filling.
  • Microwave in short time increments to avoid scorching.

How to No Bake Cottage Cheese Cheesecake Jars with Fruit Compote

  1. Mix graham crackers with melted butter. Set aside.
  2. Microwave the white chocolate chips at 30 second intervals until just melted (about 1 ½ minutes). Melted will be ¼ cup.
  3. Puree the Daisy Cottage Cheese and vanilla extract in a food processor until completely smooth (about 1 minute).
  4. Pour the smooth cottage cheese and vanilla mixture into a medium mixing bowl. Use a rubber spatula to gently fold-in the melted white baking chips.
  5. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the graham cracker mixture into the bottom of a dessert jar, and scoop ¼ cup of cottage cheese cheesecake filling on top and smooth with the back of a spoon.
  6. Sprinkle 1 more tablespoon of the graham cracker mixture on top, and then top with 1/3 of a lid of fruit compote.
  7. Scoop another ¼ cup of cottage cheese cheesecake filling on top, and then finish another 1/3 of a lid of fruit compote.
  8. Repeat with remaining jars. Chill for 2 hours in refrigerator before serving.
