Cherry Cheesecake Pie

Angela (Grammy) Derby


Making cheesecake just couldn't get easier! I got this recipe from a neighbor well over 40 years ago. It's been a hit on several occasions, parties and pot luck dinners. This is such a creamy, rich type of cheesecake, it's hard to believe what little time and effort actually goes into it.
