A sugar cookie crust, a thick cheesecake filling and cherries galore on top! A perfect dessert…that is, once you add some whipped cream of course!!! Try this cherry cheesecake soon! Thanks to the sugar cookie crust, this dessert comes together rather easily! The filling is simple, too! Just be sure to bring your cream cheese to room temp first for easier blending!

I love to cook, but I don’t always have time to cook. Like many of you: I’m a mom, own my own business and try to still manage to have a bit of a life. Cooking up an elaborate meal or dessert doesn’t always happen. I like easy recipes. That’s why I know you’re going to love this easy cherry cheesecake (plus the super yummy sugar cookie crust).

I made a super simple cheesecake mixture with cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and a little bit of powdered sugar. Originally I wasn’t going to add the sugar, but I used a little bit to thicken it up a bit.


Easy cherry cheesecake recipe is the perfect summer dessert. Using a sugar cookie crust, a no bake cheesecake recipe and cherry pie filling it’s a delicious dessert for summer.


The Crust:

1-1lb of Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough, I used the mini cookie dough pieces

The Filling:

4-8oz. blocks of Cream Cheese..softened
4 Eggs
1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1 cup Granulated Sugar
1 can cherry pie filling for the topping


Press the cookie dough into the bottom of an 8 inch springform pan and bake at 350 about 15 minutes until almost done.
Let cool.
Meanwhile, beat cream cheese and sugar.
Add vanilla and one egg at a time, beating well.
Pour into crust.
Lower oven to 325 and bake 75-90 minutes until cooked through and browned.
Chill overnight in fridge and top with canned cherry pie filling.
