One of the greatest desserts ever is cheesecake. And barbecuing it? Well when it is flipping 40+° in the shade and you want to keep the oven off in the house? How brilliant is it that you can do this?
While at the market, getting inspired to make the Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin, I bought cherries for my husband. Well what do I think about cherries? What better to have them on than cheesecake. Okay, that is the ONLY way to eat cherries. (Although I am sure many of you will disagree) So online I go, in search of a good grilled cheesecake recipe. I knew about this video, but….
This video was inspirational, but did not give me anything in the way of selecting a cheesecake recipe. I poured over all of my cook books to find something that would work. Far too many have opted to go the way of the “no-bake” cheesecake. *shudder* But finally, in the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, I found a classic cheesecake recipe that I could adjust to suit our needs.

Cheesecake can be filled and topped and swirled with any number of ingredients.
Melt ½ cup of semisweet chocolate and beat it into the filling mixture just before adding the eggs.
Melt ¼ cup of semisweet chocolate and mix it into ½–ish of the filling. Pour the plain filling into the crust, then pour chocolate flavored filling over top, using your spatula to swirl it into the plain filling.
Summer Berry Cheesecake
Prepare the Stewed Summer Berry Pot, add ½ of the berry mixture to ½–ish of the filling. Pour the plain filling into the crust, then pour your berry mixed cheesecake filling over top, using your spatula to swirl it into the plain filling. Top with the other half of the summer berry pot.
Add ½ tbsp. of lemon zest that has been chopped really fine, or 2 tsp. lemon juice and a couple of drops of yellow food colouring to the filling.
So after all of that, I never ended up putting the cherries on top. The cheesecake was served, still warm, with just a bit of cool whip and we totally forgot about the fresh cherries. Not that I knew what to do with them anyway. Does anyone out there know how to get rid of the cherry pits, or do I need a gadget for that? What sort of toppings do you do with your cheese cakes? What is your favorite?
