Cherry Cheesecake

Sure! Here’s a recipe for Cherry Cheesecake:


  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 24 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling


  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Grease a 9-inch springform pan and set it aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter until the crumbs are evenly coated. Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared springform pan, creating an even crust. You can use the bottom of a glass or a spoon to help press it down firmly.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. Make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally to ensure everything is well combined.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until the mixture is smooth and well blended.
  5. Pour the cream cheese mixture over the graham cracker crust in the springform pan, spreading it out evenly.

  1. Bake the cheesecake in the preheated oven for about 50-60 minutes or until the center is set and the edges are lightly browned. It should still have a slight jiggle in the center.
  2. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and let it cool in the pan on a wire rack for about 10 minutes. Then, carefully run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen the cheesecake. This will help prevent cracking as it cools.
  3. Once the cheesecake has cooled to room temperature, refrigerate it for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow it to set completely.
  4. Before serving, spread the cherry pie filling over the top of the chilled cheesecake.
  5. Carefully remove the sides of the springform pan, slice, and serve. Enjoy your delicious Cherry Cheesecake!

Note: You can also garnish the cheesecake with whipped cream or fresh cherries if desired.
