Is there anyone who doesn’t like cherry cheesecake? We don’t personally know of anyone who can resist a luscious country cheesecake complete with piped on decorations created of the cheese cake mixture. This cheesecake is very simple and easy to make and doesn’t require a lot of skill in the kitchen.
1 8 ounce package of cream cheese
1/2 small can sweetened condensed milk
one/sixth of a cup(about two tablespoons) of concentrated lemon juice
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
One can tart cherry pie filling
Soften the cream cheese in the microwave, using intervals of 15-30 seconds to accomplish that.
Stir until it is like soft margarine or butter and is creamy in texture
Add the condensed milk and the lemon juice and blend on slow speed of your blender or mixer.
Add cream of tartar and continue to blend until well mixed.
Pour into the prebaked pie shell-reserving about two tablespoons to use in garnishing.
Over the top, pour your cherry pie filling to the desired thickness.
Put the reserved cream cheese filling into a pastry or decorating bag and using a star tip, pipe small stars around the top of your cheesecake to garnish it.
Refrigerate until firm and cool, usually about an hour prior to serving.
You may also make your cheesecake in a graham cracker crust if you prefer and replace the cherry pie filling with blueberry or another favorite.#
