Sometimes when you go through old files, you come across things that you made months, sometimes years ago, and realized you forgot to blog about it! Such is the case with this New York Style Cheesecake with Fresh Cherry Topping!
Recently, when putting away some of our things in the office and cleaning out boxes, I came across my memory sticks that I had saved all my food photos on. When I saw this cheesecake I realized I had never blogged it!
I had made this cheesecake when my brother was visiting 2 years ago. Actually, just a little more than 2 years! I had just bought the cherry pitter and cherries were on sale in a big way at that time. This is around the same time I made my Black Forest Brownies!
This cheesecake was so good that when I reminded my dad that I had made it for them when they were visiting, he actually remembered it! This is my go-to recipe anytime I want to make a baked cheesecake. I love the texture and flavor of a baked cheesecake so much!
You can make this any time of the year and use whatever seasonal fruit you can get, thicken it up with a little sugar and cornstarch and top the cheesecake off. Or, you can eat it without the topping! If I were making one right now, I would probably put some cinnamon-spiced apples and some salted caramel drizzle. Oh my, just saying that makes me want to make it!
