It's not too sweet, but it is rich and delightful. Goes great with coffee or tea after Christmas dinner. It sets the tone for a pleasant holiday even with family and friends.
2 eight ounce packages of cream cheese (softened)
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 can of cherry topping
Cream cheese should be softened, either by taking out of the refrigerator an hour or two before you intend to begin or by microwave.
Thoroughly mush the sour cream with a fork; add sugar flour and salt and mush again. The mixture should adopt an even consistency. Now add the remaining ingredients (except cherries).
Beat batter with a beater to thoroughly mix ingredients. Pour into a pie tin (or a cheesecake dish). Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting toothpick. If pick comes out clean then cheesecake is done.
Let cake cool. When serving, cut in pie shape and laddle on cherry topping.
