NOTE: This total uses several ingredients divided. For the whole recipe, you’ll need 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar and one whole lemon.
The whipped cream packs some incredible flavor due to the cold steeping of the roasted cherry pits. Stone fruit kernels contain a bitter almond flavor due to noyaux. By roasting these cherries in their pits, you are able to extract some of that noyaux while soaking in the whipped cream over night. The remaining fruit around the pits adds for some beautiful pink color to the whipped cream–creating the perfect accent for an already great cheesecake.
