Orange and Raspberry Cheesecake Tarts

A couple of weeks ago I had a hard time sleeping and found myself watching late night cooking shows.  The chef/host made this simple no cook cheesecake dessert and I knew I wanted to make it the next day.  This is so easy and tasty!  I’m really surprised at how well it turned out, in spite of being no bake.  I think this will be my go to easy cheesecake recipe. We’ve made it twice already in less than a month!

Recipe From


  • 8 oz. softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 6 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 10 preformed graham cracker individual tarts
  • 2 oranges, preferably seedless
  • 2 Tablespoons Grand Marnier
  • 1 pint fresh raspberries


1. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, lime juice, and sweetened condensed milk.2. Spoon cream cheese mixture into graham cracker tart shells. Place in refrigerator for several hours or until cold and solidified.3. Prepare orange segments by first peeling the oranges using a knife so that there remains no part of the peel on the orange. Using a paring knife, cut in between each of the membranes so as to remove orange segments with no membrane attached. Mix with Grand Marnier and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes.4. Garnish the tops of the tarts with raspberries and marinated orange segments and serve.
