I love to bake cheesecake and almost anything else sweet. My favorite cheesecake recipe comes from Bon Apetite, white chocolate raspberry. I have adapted it for many other flavors. I think that the secret is getting good ingredients.

I use a formula for cheesecake.

1 pkg cream cheese
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp flour

Usually, I multiply the formula by 3. I vary flavours, with the family favourite being lemon. Add the zest and juice from one lemon. Yummy with a gingersnap crust.

Cheesecake is my favorite dessert. I love a good New York cheesecake that's just plan and weights about 10 lbs! I'm in heaven at The Cheesecake Factory.

I love cheesecake! Both baking them AND eating them.

In the autumn, I make a pumpkin/chocolate cheesecake. It's just divine! I'll post the recipe later!

Cheesecake is my favorite dessert, too! Our favorite right now is coffee cheesecake with either brown sugar shortbread crust or if I happen to have them or they're on sale, Oreo cookie crust.

A few years agowhen deciding to make qa cheesecake I looked through all of the recipies I have in all of the many cookbooks I own.

i real;ized that they all basically have the same formula

1 1/2 lbs soft cheese ( than can be any combination of cream cheese, sour cream, cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, farmer cheese...)
3 eggs
sugar ( anything from 1/3- 1 cup sugar depending on how sweet you like it..I prefer less sweet)

salt pinch to 1/2 tsp
flavorings - lemon, orange, chocolate, vanilla, pumpkin, cinnamon....

You just mix up the custard and dump it on top of your prebaked crust and bake on a lowish temp for a long time so it does not crack

the crust can be made out of crushed up cookies, vanilla wafers, graham crackers, oreos, ginger snaps.. with some butter to hold those cookies together, prebaked so it is siolid

you can also make a nut crust, crushed nuts, a bit of flour sugar & salt mixed pressed into the pan and prebaked

If you use cream cheese you will have a heavier richer cake, farmer cheese has a pleasant grainy mouth feel, there is a brand of fancy ricotta cheese abvailable only in gourmet shops here that is so lucious and fluffy that it feels like you are consuming clouds. You can play with which cheeses you use and the flavorings you choose.

Make a couple of sweet sauces to serve on the side. it isn't much more difficult than making an omlette.
