Cherry Cheesecake Lush Step by Step Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 6 tbsp salted butter, melted
  • 1 (8 oz) block cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups (1 pint) heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 (21 oz) can cherry pie filling


Prepare the Crust

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs with melted butter until the mixture is well incorporated.
  2. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of a 9×13 inch dish to form the crust. Ensure it’s even and compact for the best base layer of your dessert.

Make the Cheesecake Layer

  1. In a large bowl, beat the softened cream cheese with 1/2 cup sugar until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  2. In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream with 3 tbsp sugar and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form, ensuring a fluffy and light consistency.
  3. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture, blending well to create a smooth and airy cheesecake layer.
  4. Spread this mixture evenly over the graham cracker crust, forming a perfect layer for the cherry topping.

Add the Cherry Layer

  1. Spoon the cherry pie filling over the cheesecake layer, spreading it evenly to cover the surface.
  2. The rich, vibrant color of the cherry pie filling will add a beautiful contrast to the creamy cheesecake layer beneath it.

Chill and Serve

  1. Refrigerate the dessert for at least 4 hours, or overnight, allowing it to set completely and the flavors to meld beautifully.
  2. Serve chilled, cutting into squares or slices, and watch as it becomes the highlight of your meal.
