Rich and Creamy Cherry Cheesecake

Updated on September 28, 2014

Sheri's Cherry Cheesecake Recipe

I love cheesecake, all kinds it doesn't matter the flavor or type. Some of my favorite flavors of cheesecake are New York style, no bake, chocolate, and pumpkin. I love cheesecakes that are topped with strawberries or chocolate. But my all-time favorite is Cherry Cheesecake. There is even a day that celebrates my passion for this scrumptious dessert. National Cherry Cheesecake Day is on April 23. To celebrate this day I have remade my grandmothers recipe into a lighter version.

You may be asking why all the fuss? It's just cheesecake after all. For me there is just something about the smooth rich creaminess of the cheesecake blended with the sweet and slightly tart cherry topping. Yummy. This recipe tastes just like my grandmothers and although I don't consider it low fat it is a lighter version compared to hers.

How does a food get it's own day?

There is a food honored just about every day of the year.The President of the United States has the authority to declare a commemorative day by a proclamation. Some state's governor's and mayors of cities also can proclaim special food observance days. There are a lot of food holidays that are celebrated in April. My other favorite food holidays in this month are Florida Tomato Month, BLT Sandwich Month and Pineapple Upside Down Cake Day.
