Easier than pie....Cherry CheeseCake!

Yummy! I love cheesecake, especially a cherry cheesecake, The cherries are 100% optional. You can go with other options, Fresh strawberries, canned blueberry pie filling, drizzles of chocolate or just a naked, bare cheesecake! Any option you choose is totally up to you! I chose cherry, Let's face it Cherry Cheesecake is my all time dessert, it's almost a sin how much I love cheesecake, not just cherry all different kinds of cheesecake, even though cherry tops my list!

So how do we make this cheesecake?

It should take about 20 minutes to make, Ready to eat in 2 hours for this sin errrr delicious goodness!
You can make your own crust, I prefer making my own. Store bought or even an Oreo crust are excellent options too. That's what's great about this cheesecake it's 100% versatile.

Crust Ingredients:

24 Graham Cracker Squares. Approx 1 1/2 sleeve of Graham crackers

1/3 Cup Butter Melted

4 tbsp Sugar

Break up the Graham Crackers, In a food processor, process the Graham …

Easy Pie Crust!

I've always been interested in baking ever since I was little girl, I still remember standing on a kitchen chair because my tiny legs were much to small to reach the counter to help my grandma roll out cookie dough. Baking is my getaway it's relaxing and I enjoy it. I always thought pie crust was hard to make for some reason, therefore I never was interested into making my own and always bought pre-made pie crust. Boy oh boy was I surprised to learn it really is easy to make, cost effective and you probably have all the ingredients in your cabinets right now! The other day  I was in a rush and had no time to run to store to purchase premade pie dough. I quickly looked online and used the first pie crust recipe I ran across. This pie crust is incredibly easy and being a busy mom it was a recipe that was right up my alley! In less than 20 minutes I had my pie crust ready to use. I opted to make a pumpkin pie which is 1 of my fall favorites with this pie crust.  I prefer this pi…
