This recipe is absolutely fantastic. I have impressed many with it and so did my grandmother. It is not the 'run-of-the-mill' cheesecake. You just have to try it! Trust me, you'll love it!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine cream cheese and powdered sugar in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Add gelatin and beat until incorporated. Mix in whipped topping until smooth. Spread batter in prepared crust, leaving some room at the top. Spread cherry pie filling over cream cheese mixture.

  • Place in the refrigerator until firm, 3 to 4 hours.

Cook's Notes:

If you use reduced-fat cream cheese, it will take longer to set. Refrigerate 1 extra hour before serving.

There will be a little leftover batter if you use fruit topping. This is for the chef to enjoy!

Any canned fruit filling will work.
