Instructions
Crust:

  4. Bake 8 minutes. Remove and let cool.
Cheesecake Filling:
  1. Reduce oven temperature to 275F.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioner’s Swerve until smooth. Beat in egg, whipping cream, cherry extract and food coloring, if using. Beat until smooth.
  3. Divide mixture evenly over cooled crusts and bake 25 minutes or until just firm to the touch. Remove and let cool.
Chocolate Ganache:
  1. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt butter and unsweetened chocolate until smooth. Stir in confectioner’s Swerve and vanilla extract. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes, until thickened but still pourable.
  2. Drizzle over cooled cheesecakes.
