Okay, I’ll be honest, I am typically a plain Jane type of cheesecake person (unless it’s from the Cheesecake Factory). But this layered cherry cheesecake is doing amazing things for my taste buds!
I love how it has the crunchiness from the chopped pecans on top and in the crust! It adds another layer to the flavor pallet that I didn’t know was missing! You NEED to try this. You will not regret it. Actually, you’ll probably be thanking me so I will just say YOU’RE WELCOME in advance!
My kids absolutely LOVE this recipe. And, since it has cherries in it, I try and tell myself they are eating at least a little healthy when they go back for their 2nd or 3rd helping. A mom can pretend right?
If your kids love cherries too, you will want to check out some of our other delicious cherry dessert recipes! Some of my kids’ favorites are the lucky leaf skillet sweet roll, these amazingly gooey cherry pie bars, and then I just love these bite size cherry pies!

Find out how to make this easy and delicious vanilla wafers cream cheese cherries dessert!
First, start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Next, in a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine together the vanilla wafer crumbs, melted butter, and the cup of chopped pecan. Mix to make sure the butter coats all of the pieces.
Then, using a 9 x 13 pan, spray the bottom of the pan with non-stick cooking spray and spread the wafer and pecan mixture into the bottom of the pan. And then bake this at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Once it’s done, take it out and let it cool completely.
Then, in another mixing bowl, you will need to combine the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and the 1 ½ cups of cool whip. Blend this together until everything is well incorporated.
Now, carefully spread this over top of the vanilla wafer crust evenly.
Next, grab another clean mixing bowl, and combine the pudding mixes and milk together until they are well blended. Now, begin to fold in 1 ½ cups of cool whip into the pudding mix.
Continue to mix until it is smooth. Then, spread it over top of the cream cheese layer in the 9 x 13 inch pan.
Finish off this recipe by spreading the cherry pie filling on top of the pudding layer.
Then, top it off with the remaining cool whip and then sprinkle the remaining pecans on top for an added crunch.
Then, simply refrigerate and serve when you’re ready to eat!
