Easy Cherry Cheesecake. I used a regular baked pie crust instead of a graham cracker crust. Then instead of using cherry pie filling I made a berry topping using a this peach pie recipe as my inspiration. Basically I just mixed some smashed strawberries with some sugar and cornstarch and cooked it until it was thick. Then I stirred in some blueberries, raspberries and additional sliced strawberries. Fresh berries would be delicious, but I used thawed frozen berries and they tasted great.
