Sugar-cookie Cherry Cheesecake

Sharing is caring!

We didn’t take a picture of just the Sugar-cookie crust accidentally, but it turned out as one would imagine it should for basically being a giant cookie.

Press Sugar-cookie dough into bottom of pan, bake at 350 for 15 minutes; set aside to cool

Beat 32 oz cream cheese and, 1 Cup sugar, add 1 Tablespoon vanilla and 4 eggs 1 at a time, beating well; pour into cooled crust

Lower oven to 325 and bake 75-90 minutes until cooked through and browned, I forgot to turn the oven down on ours and it ended up only taking about 45 minutes which turned out fine

Chill over night in fridge, if your running a little shorter on time, then you should be able to just add your filling carefully, to keep the cheesecake portion from basically exploding (like when you step on a bag full of air)

Add your 1 Can pie filling, this recipe uses cherry but you can actually add any kind of sweet pie filling you would like

Once done cut then serve. We made ours for a Thanksgiving desert and it was the first to go, although I recommend cutting into small slices, as this is very rich and it’s way too easy to eat too much.
