When you combine a recipe with cherries in a cheesecake, you get a bomb of a Cherry Cheesecake Lush Dessert. This is the best cheesecake recipe because it has the creamy cream cheese, whipped topping, and a soft cherry pie filling in between the layers. It is an easy and delicious dessert you can make within a short span of time by combining all the ingredients together and layering them. Easy dessert recipes are ideal for serving anytime you have parties or have guests over because obviously it's less work and also keeps the guests happy. Cheesecake also generally gains flavor as it ages, so any leftovers are great after a couple of days if stored in the refrigerator.

Cherries are loaded with Vitamin C and very high in dietary fiber. They are also cholesterol free with little to low saturated fats. Incorporating fruity flavors in dessert recipes is not only creative but healthy too. The natural sugar in fruits helps in cutting down the amount of refined sugar that goes in desserts as well. Cherries strike a perfect balance of sweetness and tartness yielding a rich, comforting flavor in dessert recipes. Fun desserts that are homemade and use cherries or any other fruits are incredibly refreshing as well.

If you’re wondering how to make a cheesecake that has smooth, lump-free texture, always keep in mind to bring the cream cheese to room temperature rather than working with a bar of cream cheese that is stone cold. Having the cream cheese at room temperature not only helps in blending well with the remaining ingredients but also gives it a perfectly satin smooth cheesecake texture. There are so many ways to make the crust for this recipe interesting. Just follow what your palate loves the most. You can use other types of crust in the place of wafer crumbs such as chocolate graham crackers, ginger snaps, ‘Digestive’ or ‘Rich Tea biscuits,' lady fingers, shortbread, or any cookie that has a little cinnamon in it. You could also use Oreos, Sandies cookies, Honey Nut Cheerios, or Sara Lee pound cake, yellow cake mix, Milk Arrowroots, plain Graham crackers, soda crackers, etc., which are all excellent options. If cherry pie filling is unavailable, you can use other pie fillings like raspberry or blueberry flavors that work just fine. Apart from pecans, you can use many different chopped nuts like cashews and almonds which are healthy to incorporate in this recipe. Try adding crumbled Toblerone bar or Hershey's chocolate shavings on top. These ideas will help you change things up for newer flavors if you want. Whatever you decide to do, this cheesecake recipe will add that sweet charm to the occasion.
