My Mom's Cherry Cheesecake
My mom makes the most delicious cheesecake on the planet. It is seriously so good and pretty easy to make too.
What You Need:
1 (9-inch) sugar cookie pie crust (graham is so last year)
8 ounce block of cream cheese, softened
14 ounce sweetened condensed milk (not to be confused with evaporated milk)
1/2 cup lemon juice (from concentrate, don't get crazy with real lemons)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
21 ounces canned cherry pie filling (chilled)
How You Make It:
step 1. in a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy.
step 2. slowly mix in sweetened condensed milk, continue mixing until smooth.
step 3. stir in lemon and vanilla.
step 4. pour mixture into crust and chill for 3 hours.
step 5. top with cherries and grab a spoon. it's too good to share.
You can definitely eat the cheesecake without any toppings, or you can put some other random fruit on there. Whatever you want to do will be delicious. If you end up making this, let me know. My mom will be thrilled to hear about it!
