If you’re looking for a show-stopping dessert, look no further. While it’s a bit of work making cheesecake from scratch, it’s a classic and decadent way to impress your guests. This cheesecake is rich and silky and would be delicious enough on its own. But the cherry topping takes it to a whole new level when you use Seal the Seasons cherries. Not only do they deliver farm fresh taste, they’re also already pitted and washed – which eliminates a lot of the prep work.
