This is easy and can be made the day before so your party will go smoothly. I would double! I've tripled the recipe for big parties and it was all gone. To make rum soak cherries check out Drunken Cherries recipe #50395. For this recipe I'd use coconut rum. Becareful these are very powerful!
This cheesecake was very easy to make and if your like me, the more cannolis I could eat, the better..so why not try a cheesecake that taste just like a cannoli. This recipe I obtained from the WOMANS WORLD MAGAZINE (April, 2004)
With a granola crust and mascarpone cheese topping, this is not your ordinary apple pie. A cool, creamy slice is the perfect ending to a holiday meal (or any other meal!). I actually use homemade granola instead of crushed granola bars :-)
This isn't your normal Italian Fig Cookie recipe, but it's very good! The difference in this recipe, it that it calls for maraschino cherries and Amaretto! Yum! They do take a little time to make, put they are very good and the flavor improves after a day or two. It wouldn't be Christmas without them!
