Cherry Cheese Coffee Cake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Carrie in Indiana

Another Pampered Chef favorite of mine. Whenever I make this, I never have leftovers. I have had people insist it must be from a bakery. I say of course it is, MINE!! The extra effort into the presentation makes all the difference!
