Whip up a delicious sweet and tart Classic Cherry-Topped Cheesecake from My Food and Family. This cheesecake has a tasty cherry topping that can't be beat. You can even customize slices for each guest if they prefer a plain cheesecake.
Combine graham crumbs, 3 Tbsp. sugar and butter; press onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan.
Beat cream cheese, 1 cup of the remaining sugar and vanilla with mixer until blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Pour over crust.
Bake 55 min. or until center is almost set. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim. Refrigerate cheesecake 4 hours.
Meanwhile, cook cherries, lemon juice and remaining sugar in saucepan on medium heat 8 to 10 min. or until cherries are tender and sauce is thickened. Cool completely. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Spoon cherry topping over cheesecake before serving.
Sweets can add enjoyment to a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions.
Reduce oven temperature to 300°F if using a dark nonstick springform pan.
Omit cherry topping. Top chilled cheesecake with your favorite fresh fruit just before serving.
