Mini Cheesecakes III
This is certainly the most convenient and adorable way to serve cheesecake — whether you're serving a crowd or a just couple of people. Reviewer HULAMOMMY says, "This was perfect to curb my cheesecake craving since there are only 4 of us and I didn't want to make a regular sized cheesecake."
Italian Cream Cheese and Ricotta Cheesecake
Italian cheesecake — which is made with ricotta cheese in addition to cream cheese — is tradition on Easter in many Italian households. It's lighter and fluffier than your standard New York-style cheesecake.
Rhubarb season starts in early spring, but the growing season is short so be sure to take advantage while you can! Tart rhubarb is the perfect complement to rich and creamy cheesecake.
Authentic German Cheesecake
"My mom searched for years for an authentic German cheesecake recipe, but Germans use 'quark', an ingredient not readily available in the U.S. This recipe uses cottage cheese in place of quark and makes its own crust while baking," says recipe creator MISS ALIX. This cheesecake is lightly flavored with lemon and vanilla.
Carrot Cake Cheesecake
A bittersweet chocolate filling is sandwiched between layers of white chocolate, dark chocolate, and strawberry cheesecake on a chocolate cookie crumb crust.
Malted Milk Instant Pot® Cheesecake
Fans of malted milk ball candies will love this colorful and festive cheesecake made in the Instant Pot. Be sure to reserve some of the candy to use a decorative topping!

Two classic desserts, lemon meringue pie and cheesecake, are combined to make one extra special treat that fits right in with the colors and flavors of the season. Allrecipes Allstar My Southern Mess says, "I don't make cheesecakes that often but I have to say this one is near perfect. I love that it didn't need a water bath too."
