Last week I learned two important things. 1. Cheesecake is my dad's favorite dessert. I am not sure how I went my entire life without knowing this (especially considering my choice of profession) but I really had no idea. And 2. I learned how to make a cheesecake.
Throughout my life, I have made countless types of cakes, both good and bad, but never a cheesecake. Everyone always talks about how difficult they are to make - undercooked, overcooked, cracking tops - there are so many things that can go wrong. I was intimidated.
But, I finally decided to bite the bullet and just do it. And let me tell you, I am very glad I did (and so is my dad). This cheesecake is the perfect combination of sweet and tangy, and still maintains it's creamy consistency. it is the perfect base recipe that will allow all of your cheesecake dreams to come true.
Once you have a good base like this, it is so easy to add new flavors or different toppings - or you can even turn it into a Spiderweb to celebrate Halloween like we did here. The possibilities are endless.
