Cherry Cheesecake Lush

Took this to a ladies luncheon and everyone loved it. Will definitely be making this for the holidays. Next time I make it I think I will use 1 stick of melted butter instead of 1 cup melted butter. The crust stuck to the pan & I wonder if a cup of butter is a bit too much.

Okay, have you guys had a lush before? We’ve got a seriously yummy strawberry lush that always gets rave reviews, so it was only natural that we go for round two with a cherry version of our tried-and-true staple. The key to a lush is that you’ve got a crushed cookie base, a cream cheese filling layer, a cheesecake pudding layer, topped with a fruity topping of your choice – here, we went with cherry pie filling – and then you top it all off with frozen whipped topping or whipped cream. Put it in the fridge so it sets nice and firmly, then slice it up, serve it and enjoy!

I would give it 5 stars, but……ive made this twice and both times I followed it step by step and the crust I’ve had to change it. I cup of melted butter is ALOT!! And I had to double up on the wafers and pecans because it wasn’t enough for a 9×13 pan. Did not double up on butter though. It was more then enough for doubling the other two ingredients. But other than that, this cake tastes amazing!!!

You could make a crust out of anything you want (shortbread, nuts, etc.), but we really like using vanilla sandwich cookies here to lend a subtly sweet flavor, without competing with the other flavors in the dish, namely the cherry cheesecake vibes we’ve got going on in here. With the cream cheese layer AND the cheesecake pudding layer, along with the cherry pie filling (secret: we’re suckers for the store-bought stuff!), this dessert is unbelievably yummy.

Had Cherries so decided to try this and it was great. glad i read comments first. Doubled nuts and wafers for the butter. Next time will combine the pudding and cream cheese mixtures. need 2 cans cherries too.. This is for company. Just too much for 2 people but great recipe.

One thing though, do make sure to let your cherry cheesecake lush set in the fridge or freezer long enough if you want to see all those pretty layers – it’ll taste just as good either way, but we love how pretty this dessert looks…everyone’s always impressed when we make it!
