Ricotta Cheesecake Slice with Lemon Shortbread Crust

Ricotta Cheesecake Slice with Lemon Shortbread Crust

Many cheesecakes, made only with cream cheese, have a dense and creamy texture. This makes the cheesecakes feel indulgent, but you don’t always want a dessert that feels so heavy. One way to lighten up a cheesecake is by adding ricotta cheese. By blending the ricotta with cream cheese, you still get a good cream cheese flavor but with the much lighter texture of the ...

Vanilla Cheesecake with Plum Preserve Swirl

Vanilla Cheesecake with Preserves

Vanilla cheesecake is like a blank canvas. The rich, creamy filling is not too sweet and has a very subtle tang to it from all of that cream cheese.

For this batch, I wanted ... Read More »

Lighter Authentic New York Cheesecake

New York Style Cheesecake

New York Style Cheesecake is known for being rich, creamy, heavy and indulgent. And when I say “heavy” I mean it literally, because the classic recipe for this type of cheesecake calls for 2 1/2 lbs of cream cheese! The dense but smooth texture of the cheesecake is its signature, setting it apart from other types of cheesecakes and making it so popular – and ... Read More »

Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Sometimes, red velvet cakes are known more for their brilliant coloring than they are for their flavor because it is easier to simply make the cake look fancy than put together a great recipe. Flavor is unquestionably the most important thing for a baked good to have, but it sure doesn’t hurt to have a “wow” factor on top of that. These Red Velvet Cheesecake ... Read More »
