Boston Cream Cheesecake

If you can’t decide between cheesecake or regular cake and like the attributes of Boston Cream Pie, this dessert has it all! The recipe is from my friend Alton’s family cookbook. If you recognize it as one from Philadelphia Cream Cheese, take a closer look because you’ll see that there’s less cream cheese, sugar and […]

If you haven’t perfected classic New York style cheesecake, here’s a recipe worth trying in the new year. I’ve made it twice in the past two weeks and think it might be our new go-to cheesecake. Or at least I hope. I need to stop hopping from one cheesecake recipe to another. Anyhow, this one […]

Hollywood Cheesecake

In light of some very exciting travel plans next week which I hope will bring lots of fun things to write about, today’s recipe is called Hollywood Cheesecake. It’s actually a very old recipe, but I’d never tried it;  and with its simple proportions, it was the perfect recipe for experimentation.   Rather than make […]

This cheesecake is adapted from a vintage back-of-the Argo cornstarch recipe. It’s been updated over the years and there’s a new version on Argo’s web site, but this seems to be the recipe people love because I kept seeing requests for it on lost recipe forums.  It had been in my files forever and I’d been […]

Alton Brown’s Awesome Cheesecake

cheesecake

Today wasn’t the greatest, but one good thing came out of it – a terrific cheesecake! I started this recipe shortly before the air conditioner broke and resumed once it was fixed. It was an attempt to use up a bunch of cream cheese which I bought by accident last week, but his afterthought-cheesecake turned […]

Chocolate Glazed Triple Layer Cheesecake

About ten years ago I made this cheesecake for a family holiday dinner. It got so many rave reviews that I’ve been making it on and off since then for dinner parties, teacher luncheons or any event that calls for a dessert that’s fancy, but is fairly easy to transport and can be made ahead. […]

Miniature Coconut Macaroon Cheesecake

mini-cheesecake-whole

Last night’s cheesecake was a success. I was worried I’d overcooked it, and while I think it could have come out of the oven a bit sooner, it still had a good texture – that is, if you like thick and dense cheesecakes. I’ve typed up how I made it and shaved a couple of […]
