    1. Stir together digestive biscuit crumbs, butter and sugar in a bowl until well mixed and crumbly. Press into a cheescake tin or pie dish, going up the sides as much as possible.
    2. Beat together the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until smooth and spreadable. Whisk whipped cream into cream cheese mixture until smooth. Pour cream cheese on top of prepared biscuit base. Smooth the top with a spatula, and refrigerate until firm, about 2 to 3 hours. Spread the cherry fruit filling over the top, and chill until serving.


    You could also use black cherry jam instead of the fruit filling.
