New York Italian Style Cheesecake

Rating: 4.5 stars 76
This recipe was given to me by my Italian mother-in-law. It is the type of crustless cheesecake that is sold in Italian bakeries in New York. I usually make it with whole-milk ricotta which is creamier than low fat. This is not a diet item! You can add fresh fruit topping if you desire.

Tiramisu Cheesecake

Tiramisu-flavored cheesecake combines the flavors and richness of tiramisu and NY Cheesecake. Just before serving, grate some semisweet chocolate on the top.

Instant Pot® Cheesecake

Rating: 4 stars 55
Cheesecake? In a pressure cooker? You bet. A creamy cheesecake relies on beating lots of air into the batter before cooking it. It also requires steaming. When you bake a cheesecake in the oven, you also need to put a pot of hot water underneath the springform pan to ensure the top of the cheesecake does not crack. In an Instant Pot®, all you need is a little water and the trivet. The result is a decadent cheesecake with no fuss. Serve with fruit on top, such as ripe blackberries.

"Burnt" Basque Cheesecake

Rating: 5 stars 31
I rarely post a trendy recipe while it's still trendy. But this 'burnt' cheesecake method deserved the hype; baking it in a very hot oven delivers a beautiful, dark exterior full of bittersweet notes that make the light, creamy cheesecake interior seem even more rich and flavorful. Plus, this method is just plain easier--just remember the parchment paper. So, if you've not had much luck with traditional cheesecake methods, you should stop trying and make this exclusively.

Chocolate Turtles® Cheesecake

This is a fabulous cheesecake with an chocolate cookie crust and a pecan, caramel and fudge topping. It presents beautifully!

Very, Very, Very Good Cheesecake

Rating: 4.5 stars 102
I first made this cheesecake for dinner guests about two years ago. I haven't stopped getting requests for it since. Though it's made with extremely rich ingredients, the cake turns out wonderfully light. I never liked cheesecake much before I tried this recipe - but boy, have I been reformed! It's quite easy to make too!

Chocolate Cappuccino Cheesecake

Rating: 5 stars 457
This recipe becomes a favorite as soon as it is tasted. It was once referred to as 'sinfully rich and velvety smooth'. Best if made a day before serving.

Canada Day Nanaimo Bar Cheesecake

Rating: 4.5 stars 29
The taste of a Nanaimo bar in a cheesecake! Can't get any better than this. Make in the jelly roll pan for serving a larger crowd. Result is thinner but still as tasty. (You will need to adjust baking time if you use the bigger pan.)

Brownie Caramel Cheesecake

Rating: 4.5 stars 543
This is a great recipe that gets compliments when ever I make it. It is very rich, and worth the time and calories.
