Chocolate Chip Cherry Cheesecake Recipe

I fell in love with cooking when I was 11 years old, and have enjoyed creating and modifying recipes since then. This cheesecake was a big hit when I first made it, and everyone agrees that it's the best flavor combination. —Shelly Klingler, Bloomington, Illinois
