I can’t bake, and I’m not afraid to admit it. But that doesn’t mean I can’t throw together a simple delicious pie or cheesecake. I haven’t yet graduated to making my own crusts, so I ‘cheat’ and grab those pre-made ones from the store. I have to, it’s just the way it is. This Black Forest cheesecake came out fantastic despite my lack of baking skills. A nice chocolatey flavor, perfect texture, and topped with yummy tart cherries. Dangerously good. Heck, I’m pretty darned proud of my total lack of baking skills now!

Don’t Mess With Perfection

What I do differently next time I make a Black Forest cheesecake? Nothing. Not a thing. Well, ok, I might double the recipe and make four cheesecakes instead of just two. I’ll be taking a few of these to our next family holiday get-together, that’s for sure! I’m a huge, huge fan of cheesecakes and this version is just another great reason why. You just can’t beat them for flavor, appearance and simplicity!

Also try my no-bake red velvet cheesecake. It’s one of my wife’s all-time favorites! She’s always on the look-out for something red velvet and the cheesecake more than satisfied her taste buds!

Inspired by a recipe from Kraft.
