Decadently delicious and easy, too!! I used Nestle Tollhouse cookies, & they come in squares rather than in a roll, and there are 24 to a pack. They are thicker, so I baked them for a full 20 minutes in the first step, and also an additional 5 in the second (cream cheese) step. Since I had 24 cookies, I made two batches. I loved the chocolate/cream cheese flavors so much, that I melted 2 oz. of chocolate chips & 1/4 cup cream together and drizzled it over the tops of the second batch instead of the cherries. Both were tasty! I made these as a thank you for some people and later overheard someone say they were "a taste of heaven", so they were a big hit, I think! :) Thank you so much, DiB's!!

I've never before attempted to make cheesecake before. This was a very easy recipe, the cheesecakes turned out perfect! I was thinking of trying this with brownie batter (in place of the cookie) for next time. Mmmm, thanks for sharing!

Perfectionn in a cupcake liner!! I made these for a girls' night out and impressed everyone with this pretty little package of a dessert. I used sugar cookie dough as the base, fat-free cream cheese and no-sugar-added cherry pie filling to cut calories. What a winner! Thanks DiB's for sharing.

These were AWESOME. I'm thinking about having one right now, and it's only 7:30 in the morning. Even better the next day.

These were AWESOME! I did everything according to recipe, but didn't garnish with the almonds or chocolate. This will be one of my "go to" recipes from now on. Can't wait to make them again!

These are fantastic! Very easy to make, and beautiful to boot! These would absolutely be great to bring to a party because they look like you spent a ton of time on them when in fact, they are a snap to prepare. I ran across this recipe and thought well... how can you go wrong with cookie, topped with cheesecake, topped with cherries, topped with almonds! These turned out beautifully and I will certainly make them again. Thanks so much for your recipe, it really is fantastic :)

These were fabulous! I used homemade sugar cookie dough for the base but other than that I followed the recipe to a T. It was simple, tasted terrific, and made the perfect amount for a small gathering. Thanks!

I thought this was very easy to make... and let me explain why. I just moved in with my boyfriend, who is the "typical" male... barely any cooking items... in fact I had to buy measuring cups. The recipe wants you to beat some of the ingredients together which I had to do by hand... and considering it still came out scrumptious I figure if I can do it, anyone can. I found that the mix set at 15 mins. I excluded the use of almonds and cherry pie filling, choosing to instead draw some leaves with gel frosting and drop one raspberry on top. I also used cookie dough that had pecans and chocolate chips. This recipe opens up the door for a lot of adaption.

Very tasty and quite easy to make. It took 20 minutes for the cream cheese mixture to "set" while cooking, and I toasted the almonds before putting them on top. Thanks for sharing!
