Samara Acar

Wasn't sure I'd like this as much as the caramel mountain top cheesecake cause that just has so much more but there are good for a large amount of people or events for sure.

Dalia Dailey

I used brown sugar instead of white but it was sooo tasty nonetheless going to be making this so much this year.

Ayleen Tapper

So my boyfriend made me this but swapped a few things out, instead of cherry he used blueberry ( My personal favorite) and he used a small heart container instead of making it into little muffin containers. It tasted AMAZING! Though it took a while for it to cool down I'd totally recommend it.

Azalea Labhart

I'd say put a bit of whippedcream on the top to make it look like little cupcakes if you want to get creative add some sprinkles too, they are delicious with everything sweet!

Aiyanna Nau

HUGE Crowd pleaser my family and I made this all together for my nieces 9th birthday and everyone enjoyed it.

Jovie Kerkemeyer

Kids gobbled the whole thing up almost instantly, it tasted great thx so much for sharing.

Briar Dibitetto

Didn't have vanilla extract so used vanilla sugar instead,yum.

Kinlee Lops

Taste just fine but I think they are a lot better without vanillia wafers, I'd use normal pie crust or make it myself.

Audree Savich

Berry tasty lol, I added some extra fruit to this to mix things around and it was wonderful.

Maryjane Jedziniak

Love that the vanilla wafers make this cherry cheesecake slightly crunchy and it really does add to the flavor in a good way, thanks for sharing.

Mariella Eckrote

They were slightly bitter so next time I'm thinking of replacing the cherry with something lighter like strawberries or blueberries instead.

Vada Naas

Super good! Drizzled some caramel and chocolate over the top it was yummy.

Wren Soscia

Went with some strawberries cause my fiance doesn't like cherries to much and I think the strawberries tasted way better too.

Eisley Bismark

Really good cheesecake though It takes a long time to cool down that's for sure, ended up sticking it in the fridge for a solid hour haha.

Nellie Beckstrand

Amazingly tasty it was one of the easiest cheesecake recipes I could find and it has cherries which are my favorite :)

India Durecki

This cake was delicious! just make sure you bake it for the proper amount of time or the cherries will taste burnt.

Marcella Groetsch

Another wonderful recipe from the wonderful Lilly as always making the best foods out there!

Priya Lomedico

Only reason I'm giving this 4 stars is because there simply wasn't enough of these!! Too good to be so tiny.

Emmalee Lupu
