Reviews for Black Forest Cheesecakes
"These were great! Perfect size. Used cherries I had in freezer, added sugar and cornstarch to thicken and used real whipping cream."
"When my husband asked for a "cheesecake" for his birthday party, I knew I was going to have to make two of them to feed all the guests at our party. My dilemma was, I only had one springform pan. I decided to make these instead and I was soooooo delighted with them. The birthday party was outdoors at a picnic grove, so it was so easy to serve each guest an individual cheesecake, top it with a dollop of cherry pie filling, then squirt a little whipped cream from the can. I got so many compiments on them. Now I'm making them for my daughter's valentines party at school."
