Ingredients

  • 8 ounces graham cracker (15 4 3/4 x 2 1/2-inch sheets of graham cracker; yes, I am crazy enough to both count and measure finely ground, or cookies such as chocolate or vanilla wafers)
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick or 4 ounces or 113 grams, melted)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 packages cream cheese (8 ounces each, softened, Philadelphia is recommended for cheesecakes but if you’ve had success with other brands, feel free to use them again)
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest (finely)
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest (finely grated)
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 10 ounces sour cherries (or sweet, pitted, they’re not in season here so I used frozen; worked just fine)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1/2 cup water

If I’m being honest with you guys, I’d have to admit that I cut the cream cheese to 2/5 and improvised the rest of it to sort of match. It worked out really well but the top of my crust burned a bit. Oh, well. I just trimmed it off and now it’s just fine.
Everyone loved it ❗️😋

All my friends said this was the best cheesecake they ever tasted, and many of them are quite good cooks. I loved it too, but I didn't like the cherry topping. No one else complained, but I thought it was just too sweet.

This chhesecake presents very well and it tastes wonderful! I would reduce the sugar in the cheese next time but my guests had no complaint. It was a hit!
