How to Make A Perfect Cheesecake

October 19, 2014

Cheesecake is a decadent dessert that can be anything from a fluffy no-bake treat, to a richly flavored slice of true culinary genius. We love them all. There is something about pure vanilla and creamy cheese that makes us weak in the knees. 

Making cheesecake is another matter. Unless you start with a mix or a simple cheesecake-like recipe, making a true cheesecake takes a bit of finesse. It's not necessarily hard to do, just delicate. Here is a video that shows how to make one style of cheesecake known as New York Style. That means a dense cake, as rich as can be. It can be covered with fruit or sauces, but the true test of a fabulous NY style cheesecake, is to take a bite of a plain slice. 

Now that you can make your own cheesecake, how about ramping it up a bit? Here are some other recipes that will keep you in cheesecake for months. So delicious!
