No Crust Cherry Cheese cake

Pella —

Ingredients

INGREDIENTS FOR CHEESECAKE
2 - 8 oz bars of cream cheese (16 oz total)
3/4 c sugar
3 eggs
1/2 tsp almond extract
INGREDIENTS FOR SOUR CREAM LAYER:
1 c sour cream
3 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract


 
 

Directions

1
Blend cheesecake ingredients in blender until smooth. You may have to scrape the sides once or twice. Pour into well greased 9 inch pie pan. (I use a glass pan.) Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Cool 20 minutes. Top will collapse on cooling to form a well for the sour cream topping.



In small bowl, blend with spoon, the following:



1 cup sour cream

3 Tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract



Pour over cooled pie. Chill well in refrigerator.



OPTIONAL: Before serving, spoon 1 can chilled cherry pie filling over pie. You may use blueberry or other pie filling as well.



OR: You may decorate the top of the pie with slices of fresh kiwi fruit and strawberries. Brush with glaze made with 1/4 cup apricot jam and 1 Tablespoon water brought to boil over medium heat, and boiled about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Cool glaze slightly.
