      This was my absolutely favourite dessert when I was growing up. However, my Mom always made it with frozen cherries instead of pie filling and it was never the same with the latter that I've never been able to find until now. Hence I'm giving this recipe a try again with a more from scratch topping. If you want to try it, and can find some some frozen cherries (sour/cooking variety) thaw them and then ensure all are pitted while being careful to preserve any juice. Drain the juice off and supplement with water to make 1 cup of liquid. Add 3/4 cup of white granulated sugar to the liquid. Boil and thicken into syrup using your favourite method (I use 2 tbsp of cornstarch liquified with minimal amount of water and then added to the syrup as soon as it is at a full rolling boil). Add the drained cherries to the syrup and cool before topping the cheesecake. (If you do this step first and refrigerate while making the rest of the recipe works well)

      I've been making this since the 1970s. My adult children will ask me to make this when they come home for a visit. They have eaten desserts from around the world and this is still one of their favorites. I just got a request for this dessert earlier in the week from an older friend. Thanks for posting.

      Because I am always short on time, I make mine a little different. I use the already made Philadelphia Cheesecake filling (found in the cream cheese area). I also buy the graham cracker crust already made so all I have to do is put the cheesecake filling in the crust, put the cherries on top, then I top it with cool whip. It tastes about the same, but if you are in a rush, it is very easy to do this way.
