Who here LOVES cheesecake?
Who here loves creating and baking your own favourite cheesecake recipes?
Well if you answered ‘ME’ to both of those questions sit back and read on because you could very well have the next Kraft Philadelphia Cheesecake of the Year recipe at your fingertips!
I personally have never baked a cheesecake and I am not quite sure why to be honest, after all I love to bake and am always cooking up a storm in my kitchen, but I do love me a nice big slice of the sweet, rich and velvety goodness that a good cheesecake offers every so often. I think I will make it my next mission to start experimenting with cheesecakes in the very near future.
Thinking back over the last year I have had my fair share of cheesecakes; mini mocha cheesecakes, triple-chocolate cheesecake, maple cheesecake squares, I could seriously go on all day here. All of these cheesecakes have been delicious and nearly equal in my scale of 1 to delicious however one stands out in my mind as I sit here, mouth-watering dreaming of the next delicious cheesecake I will meet.
The one sticking out above all others has to be the delicious Vanilla Cheesecake topped with white and milk chocolate (as seen above). This rich, creamy and utterly silky morsel of heaven was a dessert made by a good friend of mine during a dinner party and I am sure we can agree that dessert is almost always the best part; well this one hit the mark. I am definitely not a huge dessert person and if you were at an event with me you would most often see me turn away sweet treats, cakes, cookies and the like because I am normally stuffed from dinner. However when I know cheesecake is on the dessert menu I simply cannot turn it down – EVER and don’t even think about sharing! I will even forego seconds in order to have room for cheesecake anything and let me tell you that takes a lot of restraint because I love food period!
