Though the world's love of almonds dates a little further back than that of cherries, it may come as no surprise that both of these delicious treats have been beloved for thousands of years - and are thought to be from the same region of the world: the Mediterranean. Both were beloved by Roman conquerors, Chinese noblemen, and peasants. Cherries and almonds have so much in common, in fact, that it's only natural that they come together to create one delicious dessert. Our Cherry Almond Cheesecakes perfectly marry the sweet ripe taste of tangy cherries with the smooth, creamy flavors of almonds. In other words: we've made our ancestors proud.
