Usually when I hear about these holidays, I'm like, 'Really? Should we really be calling that a holiday?' With cheesecake, I'm totally on board. It's National Cheesecake Day! And if you live near a Cheesecake Factory, you can get a slice of cheesecake for half price. If you don't, or only believe in homemade, here's a couple ideas for you. These are some of my favorite cheesecakes. I like most of these more than any cheesecake I've ever eaten, restaurants included. Hurry and make one today! :)
Cookies and Cream Cheesecake- Oreo cookie crust, vanilla cheesecake with Oreo chunks. Topped with crushed Oreos and white chocolate drizzle/ganache.
Caramel Apple Cheesecake- Graham cracker crust with vanilla cheesecake, covered with cinnamon apples, caramel, pecans and melted marshmallow. (And I think toasted coconut would be good here. Like it on an apple? Throw it on your cheesecake.)
Spiced Pumpkin Cheesecake- Spiced graham cracker crust with pumpkin cheesecake covered with caramel and toffee bits. Maybe it's just for fall. Maybe not.
Turtle Cheesecake- Vanilla wafer crust with a chocolate cheesecake base, pecans, caramel and white and dark chocolate.
Have a great Cheesecake Day!
