This cheesecake is a delight to eat. The cheese filling could not have been easier to make, and it is the smoothest, creamiest cheese filling I have ever tasted. Using the greek yogurt with the cream cheese was brilliant as far as texture and taste. I actually bought fresh cherries and pitted them myself, which was the most time consuming part to make this. It was worth the extra effort, though, since store bought, canned cherries are much sweeter and have much more sauce, which I prefer less of. The crust is delicious, and again super simple. I toasted pecans instead of walnuts, partly because I don't like walnuts much and partly because I already had pecans. The toasting was key to adding a nice flavor to the crust. I have already added this recipe to my database of recipes to use again.
Pros: Very creamy, toasted nuts in crust gave it a nice flavor, excellent summer dessert
Cons: Still a bit high on calorie count, although the ingredients provide good nutrients
