Imagine a layer cake with cherries in the center and rich, chocolate ganache covering the top and pouring down over the sides. Sounds decadent, doesn't it? Now imagine the layers are made of cheesecake. That's what this is – an Oreo cookie crust topped with a layer of cheesecake, then a layer of cherries, then another layer of cheesecake, and the whole thing is topped with chocolate ganache. I took this cheesecake to my church's Thanksgiving service, and there was nary a morsel left to bring home. It was sliced and resliced because everyone wanted a morsel. I said to an older man, “I'll be sure to make that for our next event,” and he replied, “Would you mind going home to start now?” with a straight face. It really is that good.
