Cherry Cheesecake

I love sweets and I love to make them as well. This recipe I found on It originally comes from Weight Watchers. Unfortunately, while they are points portioned, it is easy to eat too many. This was a simple recipe and I had everything on hand. Enjoy! I give this an 8 on a 1-10 scale. From here on out I’ll begin rating things.
