10 amazing cheesecake recipes

Could we have a better holiday celebration?  Don’t know about you, but cheesecake is my favorite dessert.  I don’t even have a favorite flavor.  So it was a bit difficult to put this list together, but I was able to narrow it down to the top ten in my book.

Are you ready?

Did you know? The largest cheesecake ever made weighed 4,703 pounds?  Made by Philadelphia Kraft Foods in Mexico, this cake set a Guinness World Record on January 25, 2009.  I wonder who got to eat it?

Did you know?  Cheesecake comes in many forms and has even been known to have such toppings as salsa, seafood, wasabi, green tea or sun dried tomato.  Don’t know about you, but I will stick to the sweet stuff.

Did you know? Cream cheese was not invented until 1872. A gentleman named William Lawrence, from Chester, N.Y., was trying to reproduce a French cheese called Neufchatel. He instead invented cream cheese. He thought it tasted pretty darn good, so he distributed it under the brand “Philadelphia” in 1880.  What a lucky break!

Did you know?  The cast of “The Golden Girls” ate more than 100 cheesecakes over the coarse of the show’s seven-year run?  (The storyline included cheesecake as their favorite dessert).  An awesome job perk!

Did you know? Cheesecake comes in several varieties.  The two most popular in the US are New York Cheesecake and Philadelphia Style Cheesecake.  The New York style is very rich and very heavy, while the Philadelphia style is creamy and much lighter.  Me?  I love them both just the same!

    Cheesecake is one of my favorites too. I like the lighter version best.
