"There are so many cheesecake recipes out there. They’ve been simplified and reduced to a package of cream cheese, some pudding and cool whip plopped into a pre-made crust. But that’s just not really a cheesecake is it? There’s nothing like a cheesecake baked from scratch and this cherry cheesecake really fits the bill! Here’s a tip for making a delicious cheesecake. Use a water bath. You start by wrapping the bottom of the springform pan with heavy duty foil. Then after you add the cheesecake mixture, you will place the pan in the center of a roasting pan."
