White Chocolate Cheesecake with White Chocolate Brandy Sauce

Rating: Unrated
This is a dense cheesecake that is very smooth and melts in your mouth. The white chocolate brandy sauce tops it off. I just nap it over the center of the slice of cheesecake on the plate. I garnish it with mint leaves and either raspberries or strawberries.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake I

Rating: Unrated
This is the best cheesecake I've ever had. People have offered to pay me to make these for them during the holidays!

Cinnamon-Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

This is a show-stopper dessert! The cheesecake is so creamy and luscious, studded with chocolate chips and a faint cinnamon flavor. The mascarpone here takes a little edge off of the tang from the cream cheese. The ganache, speculoos cookies, and Hershey's® kisses take it over the top. Perfect for a party!

Cannoli Cheesecake

Cannoli are Italian pastries consisting of tube-shaped shells of fried pastry dough, filled with a sweet, creamy filling usually containing ricotta--a staple of Sicilian cuisine. This is a cheesecake inspired by the flavors of a traditional cannoli. Serve with a big glass of cold milk! This would last several days, covered, in the refrigerator.

No-Bake Cheesecake Flag Cake

That you can make this lovely, sweet treat without turning on the oven is probably enough of a reason to give this serious consideration. Besides the taste and light mousse-like texture, I think your guests will enjoy the iconic stars and stripes design provided by the fresh blueberries and strawberries. USA! USA! USA!
