Saturated with almond flavoring and delicious tart cherries, this is the yummiest cherry cheesecake you'll ever make! Be prepared to blow people's socks off. This cheesecake is a top choice for gatherings of any kind!
Ahhh, there are just a few days left in 2017. Was it a good year for you? Or are you eager to begin a fresh chapter? For us, 2017 brought a ton of incredible adventures, opportunities, memories, growth and blessings, alongside some dark and difficult times, too. I'm feeling grateful as we prepare to say hello to 2018 and I'm also eager to set new, healthy habits in motion. I should probably aim to reduce my sugar intake, but.. I'll put that one on hold till next-next year.
I've been dreaming up this Cherry Almond Cheesecake for weeks. I was tickled that it turned out even better than it did in my head. I love it when this happens (it does not always work out this way). It's like this is half cherry dessert and half cheesecake, but it's not on the typical side either way you go. I served this cherry cheesecake at two different holiday gatherings and I'd describe people's reactions as surprised by the deliciousness and also intrigued about what it was called.
I absolutely adore the flavor that the tart cherries offer but f you cannot find canned tart cherries, regular will suffice. And so you know, I feel it is important to divulge that I'm not a huge cheesecake lover. This Cherry Almond Cheesecake, though.. I am totally in love. This one is being added to the top of my DESSERTS FOR PARTIES list.
Can I use Homemade Whipped Cream for this recipe?
Absolutely yes! If desired, replace Homemade Whipped Cream with the whipped topping called for in the recipe card.
After claiming not to be a huge cheesecake lover, I realized that I actually have quite a few of them on my website (all of which I love). Check out these creations for more creamy deliciousness: Banana Cheesecake, Butterfinger Cheesecake, Mint Chocolate Chip Cheesecake and Peach-Topped Blueberry Cheesecake (oh-my-gosh this one is soooo good).
HAPPY 2018, my friends! THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for being here. Here's to a new year filled with good things for you and yours!
