New York Style Cherry Cheesecake Recipe

We absolutely love homemade cheesecake here at our home. My hubby is a fan of Cherry Cheesecake and I am a fan of Strawberry Cheesecake. People often think that making a homemade cheesecake is difficult but that is a falsehood in my opinion. Once you make one cheesecake you will see how easy and delicious it really is!

Cherry Cheesecake Recipe

2 large eggs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup sour cream
2 pkgs. (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened and cut in pieces
2 Tbsp. melted butter
graham cracker crumb crust
1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling

Graham Cracker Crust

1 cup graham cracker crumbs, break up graham crackers until you have 1 cup.
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup melted butter (do not use margarine)

Combine graham cracker crumb crust ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Press into a 9inch pie pan. Bake at 400° for 6 minutes. Cool before filling. Prepare cheesecake pie filling. Beat together eggs, sugar, vanilla, and sour cream in a large bowl. Gradually add cream cheese, beating well. Beat in melted butter. Pour cheese mixture into 9-inch prepared and baked graham cracker crust. Bake cherry cheesecake pie at 325° for 35 minutes, or until set in center. Will firm up as it cools. Top with cherry pie filling. I like to put mine into my Tupperware Pie Store'r as it has a seal/lid which doesn't smash my cheesecake and then I place it into the refrigerator for 2-3 hours before serving it.
