"If I had to choose one cheesecake to take to the proverbial desert island, Double-Cream Cheesecake with Sour Cherry Glaze would be it. I have made many cheesecakes—all good, all special. This one, however, is a heady delight. It is, without contest, an absolutely quintessential cheesecake—the type you sneak a small slice of every other day when you are not wowing guests with it."
