Looking for the perfect dessert to bring for Thanksgiving dinner or a deliciously sweet treat to impress an important date? Then a cherry cheesecake is your solution. This simple yet intricately flavorful cheesecake is great for both a large family lunch festival along with a romantic dinner, especially with a light sparkling wine.
And no, forget about purchasing the cherry cheesecake. Why don’t you make one instead? With the right tools and this easy how-to, you’ll be able to gather a scrumptious cherry cheesecake in no time.
For the crust, you’ll need a cup of graham cracker crumbs, sugar (about three to four tablespoons is sufficient ), and some peanut butter.
Now that you have all the ingredients on hand, you can start with making the crust. Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, the melted butter and the sugar, and then force down the mixture into the bottom of a spring-form pan.
While baking, go right on to creating the cake. It’s a good idea to use an electric mixer to blend together the cream cheese, the eggs (remember to drop them in one by one), then the vanilla and sugar. As soon as you get a firm consistency, bake it at about 450 degrees for ten minutes. Then, adjust the temperature to approximately 25 degrees lower and go on baking for another forty minutes.
You can then carefully take the cake off the pan and allow the cake cool. Pop it in the refrigerator overnight (or for at least nine to twelve hours). Finally, liberally spread the cherry filling over the cake.
