Cheesecake


Cheesecake has long been one of my secret passions. I used to hunt high and low for just the perfect cheese cake. One that was creamy yet firm, with a topping that wa delightfully fruity. Of course, I never ruled out a chocolate topping. Before cheesecake came packaged in individual slice packaging I used to carefully cut and wrap slices and store them in the freezer. However, there came a time when I had to cut way back because of the sugar. I decided then that I would strt making a special homemade cheese cake every now and then - just for those really specail occassions. I still am sometimes tempted to add a few occasions to my special occassion list, like Happy Friday, but I manage to restrain myself. The cheesecakes that I make seem so special and rich that one occassionaly seems to have become enough. Anyway, I decided to share a few of my favorite recipes. I hope you like them.

      stephhicks88, both are great. I think you need to try both of them. The Orange kind of reminds me of a Dreamscicle.

      Steveomc, not everyone is meant to bake a cheesecake. If you ever get around to it the pumpkin cheesecake has a great flavor.

      Prime, the chocolate chip cheesecake is a good pick. Actually I have a problem choosing my favorite. I imagine you could use any chip you wanted in it.

      I love cheesecake, I don't like that no bake one much, but I think it might be fun to try the one with pumpkin in it. But I probably won't manage to get to it and will have to buy one at Costco.

      Hi KoffeKlatch Gals,

      Absolutely the chocolate chip cheesecake for me. Just as long as they are dark chocolate bits, according to recent studies it's the healthier choice verses milk chocolate. In any event, it sounds like a delicious recipe.
