Well, folks, it's a winner. My sister asked for a cherry cheesecake for her birthday and I groaned at the time and effort it would take to produce...not to mention the expense of the recipe I had used for years. So I looked on this site for alternatives and thought I'd give this one a shot. I did and it has now replaced my old recipe as my favorite. I made no changes in the recipe except to make the crust out of leftover shortbread cookie crumbs I had frozen since Christmas. Plus, I did not want an overpowering chocolate crust to compete with the delicate flavor of the cherries. I thought about doing a fresh cherry reduction as the swirl, but I was running out of time and cherries were $6/#. So I used the store brand cherry pie filling. Gosh, it's a good cheesecake. Kudos to the developer! I am a professional caterer/personal chef...I've made a few cheesecakes in my lifetime. It's a good one. It's fast and easy and I can see where it would be deliciously adaptable.
