Reviews forCherry Cheese Torte
"I have been making this for years now, since I first seen it. I have changed it up some over the years. I now make it with a graham cracker crust versus the Lady finger (Up here it is hard to find them), in a 9x13 inch pan.Whenever I make it, there are smiles all around. No one has not fallen in love with this. Remember to double the graham cracker recipe (most are for a 9" cake pan)."
"This is so refreshing after a large meal. I have made it 3 times and we all love just like it is!"
"One of our favorites for Christmas!"
"A fabulous desert!"
