Chocolate Mint Meringue Cheesecake

Updated on February 8, 2015

Cheesecake and Brief History

Cheesecake for desert is sinfully delightful. Chocolate Mint Meringue Cheesecake is one of the richest tasting desserts.

Historians believe that cheesecake originated in ancient Greece and was served to the athletes during the first Olympic Games held in 776 B.C. Marcus Porcius Cato's De re Rustica, a Roman politician around 200 B.C., came up with a cheesecake similar to how we know it today.

It wasn't until 1872 that cream cheese was invented by American dairymen, William Lawrence of Chester, N.Y., who accidentally developed a method of producing cream cheese while trying to reproduce a French cheese called Neufchatel.

Cheesecake has become so popular that there are restaurants that specialize in this dessert. The first Cheesecake Factory restaurant opened in Beverly Hills, California, in 1978.

      @BarbRad: There is a cheesecake for diabetes linked above here under Recipes with Cheese and Cheesecake. It is a lower calorie, less fat version and still tasty.

      Although cheesecake is delicious, I haven't seen a lot of low calorie versions. My favorite is a pecan cheesecake, but we don't make it very often because it is SINFULLY delicious. Yours also looks yummy.
