Cherry Cheesecake & Video

This is my favorite cheesecake recipe because it is relatively simple and doesn’t have a lot of steps. It is very festive for the holidays and everybody loves cheesecake! This recipe is from my dear friend, Sandi Roman, she is such a great cook! She brought this to our home for Christmas Eve dinner many, many years ago when our kids were small and we didn’t know many people in town.





I was so impressed and I said,” I have to have this recipe!”Well, I have been making it every year since then! So as I was doing the foodie shoot, I used my daughter’s brand new camera and now I don’t know how to download pics from her camera and she has a cold, so I don’t want to bug her….so anyway, these are the pics from my camera when I was mixing the ingredients in the Kitchen Aid.

You can see how high the cake rises. It feels like it weighs 10 pounds when you are all done baking and adding the cherries for the topping. This is the first time that I remember my cheesecake not cracking! Success!!

If you have a Kitchen Aid, it makes this recipe so easy, if not I always used a hand blender, keep beating until the ingredients are smooth.


Pour cream cheese batter into pan.
I was so excited how high the cake rose, I took the pic in the oven, I know I am a spaz! But it really is the little things in life, but this is huge!! LOL!
Beautiful!! It does fall when it cools and when your kids slam the door! I still hear my Mom’s voice—don’t slam the door and don’t walk like an elephant!

When cake cools completely, add cherry topping.
Spray the pan before pressing crumbs on the bottom, I didn’t so some cake stuck even though it’s non- stick.
Hubs and I actually split this piece in half because he said it was too big! Ha-big baby-I could have eaten it by myself hands down!

I would love to give it a try. Can you tell me what the texture is like? Is it light and fluffy or really thick and dense? I'm looking for a really heavy dense recipe. Thanks for sharing :)

Hello hickster777,

This Cheesecake is very dense and rich, quite a treat!
