Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1-1/4 cup crushed chocolate wafers
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons sour cream
1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs. slightly beaten
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 cups (16 oz.) sour cream
5 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
cherry pie filling


In a bowl, combine the wafer crumbs, walnuts and sugar; stir in butter. Press onto the bottom and halfway up the sides of an ungreased 10-in. springform pan. Freeze for 15 minutes.

In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream and sugar until fluffy and smooth. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined. Combine milk and lemon juice; add to cream cheese mixture just until blended. Pour into crust. Place pan on a baking sheet. Bake at 350ºF for 35-40 minutes or until center is almost set.

Combine the sour cream, sugar and vanilla; carefully spread over cheesecake. Bake 10 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer.

Cover; chill overnight. Remove sides of pan. Top with cherry pie filling. Refrigerate leftovers.
