These are the type of no-bake cheesecakes you can pull out for guests and make something pretty in a snap.

It’s such an easy way to make something that even the kids will love.

I especially like them with some white chocolate on top.

But use whatever you have in the house!

22. Striped Delight

This is a wonderful little tart/treat (or treat) for all the family.

It’s a fun way to use up some leftover pastry, if you ask me.

The filling is made with Greek yogurt, honey, oats and raisins, walnuts, and cinnamon.

It’s sweet, but not too much that your child won’t eat it.

I like to add some mini chocolate chips to my topping so they don’t get soggy.

But if I’m serving more than one, I prefer them without.

23. Cheese Danish

If you’re looking to make a fun addition to your holiday table, this cheese Danish is the perfect one.
