Creamy Cranberry Cheesecake

Creamy Cranberry Cheesecake
This creamy cheesecake is perfect for holiday desserts. The colorful topping is so good that I prepare it separately and use it as a cranberry side dish at Thanksgiving. —Mary Simonson, Kelso, Washington

  • 9 whole cinnamon graham crackers, crushed
