This was delicious, with the cherry and almond flavors blending perfectly. I used almond extract (about half the amount of liqueur called for, since the extract is so strong). My crust didn't turn out very well; it was very hard to cut without breaking up although I used a sharp knife. The directions didn't say how to mix, so I cut in cold butter by pulsing my food processor as I usually do for pie crusts and shortbreads. It was still delicious although it didn't make for a pretty presentation when served.

Very good recipe. I used a graham cracker crust since I had no almonds. I also used almond extract since I had no almond liquor. Next time I'll make sure I have those items, but this recipe is good even without them!

Yum! I normally do not eat cheesecakes, however this was delicious and very creamy! I used used about 1 1/2 cups of crushed almonds, and 1/2 cup of flour for the crust. Delicious! I also added a banana cream rum to the filling and it gave the pie a banana nut flavoring!
