Grandma's Quick Cherry Cheesecake

Submitted by: ERIKA05

Introduction

So easy, and so good, in that "we've been eating this forever" kind of way. This is a legacy recpe from my husband's grandmother, updated by me to replace the added sugar with stevia, and use light cream cheese, pie filling, and evaporated milk. This is a big family crowd pleaser, and no one seems to notice the difference, although I'm not sure Grandma would approve...
