    Yum! I really enjoyed this. Not too sweet, not too tart. Great alternative to the canned cherry pie filling that you usually see on cheesecakes. I served this over New York Cheesecake (recipe #57205) and it was a big hit. I did wish it were slightly thicker. Next time I might add a little more cornstarch. Thanks for the recipe.
