Raspberry or cherry pie filling gives a festive appearance to this rich no-bake cheesecake that's perfect for Valentine's Day. "This elegant-looking dessert makes a dramatic presentation," writes Irene Pitzer of Nashville, Tennessee. "Get ready to share the recipe."
“Heavenly” is a good description for this luscious dessert, conveniently made a day ahead. When I don’t have a candy bar on hand, I melt ¾ cup of chocolate chips to use in the frosting. Whipped cream can be used in place of the whipped topping.—Arlene Butler, Ogden, Utah
"You couldn't ask for anything more than a nutty crust topped with a smooth cream cheese mixture and sweet cherries," assures Kathy Branch of West Palm Beach, Florida. Since this dessert is made the night before, you don't have to worry about last-minute fuss.
