Since the weather is starting to heat up here in Sacramento I am less and less inclined to turn on the hot oven and make my kitchen even hotter. But sometimes you want a decadent dessert, one of the most favorite desserts in our home is cheesecake! So I needed to make one that didn’t require any baking and didn’t call for any ingredients that I would have to make an extra trip to the grocery store for. This Salted Caramel Pecan No Bake Cheesecake is a hit all around the table. A light pinch of sea salt enhances the sweetness of the caramel and cheesecake making it even richer.
