    YUM! This was wonderful. I love cheesecakes, because they can be made with Splenda instead of sugar, and the kirsch in this makes sure that there is absolutely no "sugar substitute taste." The flavors in this are delicate....nothing is overpowering and it was a huge hit with the Christmas Eve crowd.
