DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350F and lightly spray a 10" springform pan with cooking spray.
  • Crush the sliced almonds with your hands, until they are crumbs (they don't need to be extremely fine).
  • Mix the almonds, flour, and 1/2 cup sugar then add the butter and egg yolks to form crumbs (note you do not want this to form a ball, it should be nice small crumbs).
  • Press 1/2 to 2/3 of the crumbs into the base of a springform pan then spread evenly with the cherry pie filling.
  • Beat the eggs, egg whites, 2/3 cup sugar, cream cheese and sour cream until smooth then pour evenly over the cherries.
  • Make sure the remaining crumb mixture is very finely crumbled then sprinkle it lightly and evenly over the top of the cream cheese mixture.
  • Bake for 50 minutes then remove from oven and cool completely before serving.
  • Note: The cheesecake portion takes awhile to firm up and is better the second day.
