If you like a dollop of cherries on top of your cheesecake, you will love this luscious no-bake cherry cheesecake lush. You get cheesecake, cherries, and creamy deliciousness in each and every bite.

No-bake desserts are often favorites for taking to summer barbecues and potlucks, but they are also perfect for hectic holiday gatherings. Lush desserts are ideal for a crowd any time of the year because they are nearly foolproof to make.


Layers of cookies, cheesecake, pudding, cherries, whipped cream, and pecans make this dessert a fan-favorite. Cherry cheesecake lush is a sweet way to impress your guests using simple pantry ingredients, and it only takes 20 minutes to assemble.

Cherry Cheesecake Lush Ingredients

  • Vanilla sandwich cookies
  • Salted butter
  • Cream cheese
  • Granulated sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • Whipped topping (Cool Whip)
  • Cheesecake flavored instant pudding mix
  • Whole milk
  • Cherry pie filling
  • Chopped pecans

Vanilla sandwich cookies make a subtly sweet crust for the cherry cheesecake lush, but you could also use a graham cracker crust, a Nilla crust, or an Oreo crust. The flavors of any crust can pair well with the cherries and cheesecake.

In addition to cherries, you could also make your cheesecake lush using blueberry, blackberry, strawberry, or even peach pie fillings instead. By using cherry pie filling, instant pudding mix, and cool whip, you have an easy dessert that only takes a few minutes to assemble.


The key to a lush is a crushed cookie base layer, a cream cheese layer, a pudding layer, a fruit topping layer, and a whipped topping. Place the dessert into the refrigerator to set and then you simply slice, serve, and enjoy.

How to Make Cherry Cheesecake Lush

FIRST STEP: Butter a 9×13 glass baking dish and set it aside.

SECOND STEP: In the bowl of a food processor, crush vanilla sandwich cookies until small even crumbs form.

THIRD STEP: Add melted butter and pulse until combined.

FOURTH STEP: Press cookie/butter mixture into the greased baking dish and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to chill while preparing the next layer.

FIFTH STEP: With a hand mixer or in the bowl of a standing mixer, beat together cream cheese, granulated sugar, vanilla, and 1 cup of frozen whipped topping until smooth and creamy.

SIXTH STEP: Spread cream cheese mixture over the chilled cookie crumb layer and place back into the freezer for another 10 minutes.

SEVENTH STEP: With a whisk or beater, combine both packages of pudding mix, milk, and ½ cup of frozen whipped topping.  Whisk until combined and mixture begins to thicken.

EIGHTH STEP: Spread pudding layer over the chilled cream cheese layer and chill for 30 minutes or until pudding is set.

NINTH STEP: Pour cherry pie filling over the chilled pudding layer.  Spread carefully so that it doesn’t mix with the layers beneath.


TENTH STEP: Gently top with remaining whipped topping. Sprinkle with chopped pecans and chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours.

Cooking Tips 

Make sure your cream cheese is room temperature so you don’t get any lumps.

If you want a thicker layer of cherries you can use a second can of pie filling. You can also use a homemade cherry pie filling.

You can use chopped walnuts instead of pecans for the topping.
