Gluten Free No-Bake Cookies and Cream Cheesecake

I love chocolate sandwich cookies.  I love the crunchy cookies with the delicious sweet cream in the middle.  I feel like a kid whenever I eat them and they have come out with so many different brands of a gluten free version so it is so easy to pick some up at really any store around.  Most big grocery stores have their own brand or carry brands of these cookies. I have seen a few recipes using the cookies as a crust and decided to try and make my own gluten free version.  I liked the idea of making it no bake because I already have an amazing baked gluten free cheesecake recipe, so I thought that I would give a no bake a try. I like to have options, especially in the summer when you just can't bear to turn on the oven.
This is such a fun dessert because it really tastes like a giant chocolate sandwich cookie.  My kids loved that it looked like that and they thought it was just so fun. The cookie crust is amazing and easy to make with just cookies and butter to whip it up.  Also sprinkling the top with cookie crumbs give it a bit of a crunch and nice texture when combined with the creamy cheesecake middle.
Whenever I get invited over to a friend's house for dinner, I always offer to bring a dessert.  A lot of times, I find that people are okay with trying to plan a gluten free dinner but get overwhelmed with the thought of trying to make a gluten free dessert.  So if I don't make one, I usually end up watching other people eat dessert which is fine but I do like a treat every once in a while and being able to enjoy it with everyone else is really nice.  This is a great dessert to bring with you because it is easy to make and it holds up pretty well.  The gelatin makes it pretty durable and sturdy so it will hold up in the car.  Also, I don't think that the chocolate sandwich cookies taste a whole lot different from the regular ones when they are crushed up and used in a crust. This has a great flavor and I would bet lots of people would be really surprised that it is gluten free.
This is a fun dessert that everyone will just love.  It does keep well in the refrigerator for a couple days and still tastes delicious.  I don't think you will be hearing any complaints from this dessert and everyone will be asking for your recipe.  Make sure to click over to my YouTube channel for more great recipes and product reviews.  Also, there is a video down below that shows exactly how I made this delicious cheesecake.
