Cherry Delight Cheesecake

Years ago my Mother purchased a cookbook called A Woman's Paradise of Recipes. It is a compilation of recipes from the kitchens of the Associated Women For Pepperdine College and it was published in 1962. My cookbook is very worn and tired looking but the recipes in it are still tried and true. I have chosen one of my favorite to share with you all. I slightly tweaked the recipe by adding 2 ounces more Cream Cheese and an additional 1/2 tsp. Vanilla. This is an elegant dessert for any occasion.
