We are going all the way back to 2009 for this one! I’ll link to mom’s original blog post with the recipe here:
Let them eat (cheese)cake…or whatever Kalissa decides | Jo’s Country Junction (joscountryjunction.com)
I’ve been making this super simple cherry cheesecake recipe for over a decade now and my number one fan of my cheesecake was my dad.
Every birthday, Christmas, celebration, etc, I would make Dad a cherry cheesecake. Since he passed away in 2019, I haven’t made a cheesecake. Kind of because it makes me a little sad but also kind of because I didn’t think Craig liked cheesecake. To my surprise, I was filling out our grocery list for the week and Craig requested some of my classic cherry cheesecake.
Happily, I added the ingredients to my WalMart pickup order and made Craig a cheesecake for his birthday on the 20th. Carver asked for a slice and it occurred to me that he had never had my cheesecake before! I explained how Papa Moo loved cheesecake and I would make one for him weekly when I lived at home.
I scooped him up a slice, he took a bite, his eyes got WIDE and he got so excited he squealed:
“MOM! I’ll bet Papa Moo is SO SAD he’s dead because this cheesecake is SO GOOD!”
OH MY GOSH. My abs hurt from laughing so hard. That kid cracks me up, I hope it made you laugh too 🙂
