Cheesecake is a versatile dessert, but it's popular for its rich, creamy, lighter flavor. There's a misconception that cheesecakes are difficult to make, but as these tried-and-true recipes will prove, the preparations aren't that difficult. Just make it a day ahead of serving, and pop it in the refrigerator to achieve that moist, thick consistency. Although a classic New York style vanilla cheesecake with raspberry topping may be the first thing that comes to mind when you consider this dessert, the reality is, cheesecake can take many forms. Whether you're in the mood for a seasonal pumpkin variety or a slice packed with fruits like strawberries or lemon, our best cheesecake recipes will have you wanting to add cheesecake to your dessert repertoire.
