I just made this for thanksgiving. Sorry about my mobile phone not letting me copy & paste the picture. The cheesecake has cherry between two layers of cheesecake. Chocolate drizzled on top with more cherries.



Crust

cups chocolate cookie crumbs

tablespoons butter, melted

Filling

4 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened

3 eggs

3/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon almond extract

1/2 cup whipping cream

1 can (21 oz) cherry pie filling

Glaze

1/2cup whipping cream

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz)



Heat oven to 325n medium bowl, combine crust

ingredients; mix well. Press in bottom and 1 inch up

sides of ungreased 10-inch springform pan.

2

In large bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on

medium speed until smooth. Add 1 egg at a time, beating

well after each addition. Beat in sugar and almond

extract until smooth. Add 1/2 cup whipping cream; blend

well.

3

Spoon 3 1/2 cups cream cheese mixture into crust-lined

pan, spreading evenly. Carefully spoon 1 cup pie filling

evenly over cream cheese layer (reserve remaining pie

filling for topping). Spoon remaining cream cheese

mixture evenly over pie filling.

4

Bake 1 hour 5 minutes to 1 hour 15 minutes or until

center is set. Cool in pan on wire rack 1 hour.

5

In 1-quart saucepan, heat 1/2 cup whipping cream to

boiling over medium-high heat. Remove from heat. Stir

in chocolate chips until melted.

6

Line cookie sheet with waxed paper. Remove side of pan.

Place cheesecake on paper-lined cookie sheet. Spread

glaze over cooled cheesecake, allowing some to flow

down side. Refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight.

Serve topped with remaining pie filling.
