Cherry Cheesecake Coffee Cake is a total dream dessert! Cheesecake is one of my all time favorites and the first dessert I always choose. There’s just something magical about that rich creamy base topped with a sweet tart cherry pie filling. This recipe adds in a delicious buttery coffee cake base under layers of cherry cheesecake and a little bit of streusel topping for a real taste of heaven!

Instructions

  • Combine flour, sugar & lemon zest in a large bowl. Cut in butter until crumbly. Remove 2/3 cup of this mixture and set aside.

Recipe Notes

Note: If using a 9x9 pan, the pan will be very full so you'll want to make sure your pan is at least 2" high. I leave my parchment paper overhanging on the edges.
