Cherry Cheesecake Pie with No Roll Out Pastry Crust

Updated on January 3, 2015

Cherry Cheese Cake Pie with No Roll Out Pastry Crust

If you want to make a pie to impress someone or just for any reason at all, but never made anything but a graham cracker crust because you are afraid to attempt a pastry crust, there is way of making a pie with pastry crust without having to roll it out. If you just can't get the hang of making a pastry crust or simply don't like making it but want it, this is the perfect recipe for you. It's simple and you can make it in no time at all. The top has to be a crumb crust, not rolled out.

You can make any kind of pie you like, I happened to make this one a cherry cheese cake pie. I will give you the recipe for making just one crust or two crusts in case you want to make a fruit pie and put a top crust on it. Hope you try it, I think you'll like it.


  • Just like all crust, keep the ingredients, except the flour, cold. That helps to make the crust flaky and not heavy.
  • Let pies sit at least 1 to 2 hours before serving to make t easier to cut.
  • If you don't have a mixer, you can use a pastry blender to coming all the ingredients except the water. When you see the crust looks like fine particles then add the water and mix with a fork.
  • Cracks may appear on the bottom due to the fact that it's a tender crust, bot don't be concerned, just fill as you wish.
  • You could also use blueberry pie filling or whatever you like

      Thank you Julia. Making crust is the one thing I have some trouble with so I like this recipe too. It's not real pretty but it does taste good and cuts real easy. Gingerbread cheesecake sounds delicious too.

      I wish you blessings.

      I just made my first cheesecake ever over Christmas! It was a gingerbread cheesecake with a gingerbread cookie crust. I must say, making crusts is always my least favorite part. I can never roll them out very well, so I'm excited to try this crust next time!
