How amazing is cheesecake! Like bread, you change one element, or you fiddle ever so much with this or that and before you can say, ahhhhhh, another cheesecake is born. I have made many cheesecakes. All good. All special. But this, (eyes downcast, tone is modest), ‘this’ is my best.

A pastry crust is the foundation of this decadent Snickers cheesecake, which offers chunks of Snickers chocolate bar and swirls of caramel and peanut butter throughout the creamy dreamy cake

Snow White waited too long. When kisses won't do, insist on cheesecake. For a rockier road, add semi-sweet chocolate chunks.

Just a touch of spicy Pumpkin cheesecake - available in fridge-ready bars for your Thanksgiving nibbles. Extravagant but not as rich as a big cheesecake in the flavor of the holiday. A recipe from a very special collection in a feature I did for the now-defunct Coffee Magazine.

I had another STC but somehow, it wasn’t over the top enough. Which is the whole point to STC – it has to be smooth, creamy, decadent, different and over the top. This is a gorgeous, high standing, brown-sugar tinged cheesecake that features chunks of Sticky Toffee Cake and is anointed with sticky toffee sauce. It is grandiose, rich and pretty wonderful. The other point to anything sticky toffee is NOT to tell ANYONE sticky toffee cake has some dates in it. You don’t see them, don’t taste them, and it just ruins an otherwise incredible dessert adventures. You know how people can be about dates. (it is how I am about mint jelly).


 

Here is a beautiful, pure-of-heart cheesecake – all white chocolate and vanilla sweetness. As for the topping, well, I suppose this is more compote that coulis but compote has no flair (or business) in a recipe title. Offer this sauce alongside a vanilla and white chocolate cheesecake. It is the perfect marriage of smooth rich cheesecake and tart rhubarb. I would also offer this with rich, cream scones.

A silky cream cheese interior, nestled in a buttery heart-shaped crust.Lemon curd or brandied cherry sauce would make a nice side, or dust with confectioners' sugar. This is a huge, cream, classic vanilla cheesecake with chunks of white chocolate, offered in a filo crust. It is show-stopping gorgeous and draws oh's and ah's and is perfect for a summer wedding. Garnish it with rose petals and white chocolate shavings. Heart shaped cheesecake pans are in most gourmet shops.

The taste of the traditional dessert with more shelf life (if it stays around long enough to make it to a shelf!).

These are luxurious, memorable, easy and almost more decadent than cheesecake itself. If you had them on hand, chopped up Turtle bars would tilt these into an illegal substance. I prefer these brownies cut in wedges, in a cheesecake pan for this recipe.


 

This yule log gets fancy with a filling of truffle-like mousse and a topping of Swiss chocolate glaze. It's definitely for chocolate lovers and perfect for making their holiday chocolate-special.
