I wanted something not quite but almost a cheesecake. Checked my pantry and this was the result. I used a a glass dish for eye appeal. It would be easier to serve if made in a spring form pan. This could be changed to a lemon dessert by using a can of lemon pie filling in place of the pineapple. Just hold back a half cup of lemon filling before folding into the mix to use for a glaze on top and eliminate the cherry filling.
