    Cooked it for a dinner party and it was a hit to the point a couple guests wanted the recipe. Being health conscious, I substituted lite cream cheese and sour cream and it worked a treat.

    Wonderful cheesecake! I made this for a birthday and will definitely make again! The texture of this cheesecake was perfect and I love the use of extra cherries!! I made one change which was to use a whole egg instead of the two yolks (mostly because I didn't want to figure out what to do with the extra whites). Excellent recipe, thanks for posting!
