Luscious Black Forest Cheesecake Recipe

A friend gave me this recipe and it's quickly become popular at our house. I enjoy making it when we entertain. My husband and I are dairy farmers and have three pre-school age children. I enjoy trying new recipes as well as yardwork and crafts. —Patricia Plett, Blumenort, Manitoba
