I love cheesecake. What more can I say? Here are the top 15 cheesecake recipes on my site. Love them. Adore them. Eat them. And think of me every bite of the way. Up tomorrow…quite possibly the most popular Christmas cookie of the season, if you trust the internet. Upon further consideration, perhaps I shouldn’t have phrased it that way since heaven knows the internet should not be the source of all reason. You can be the judge tomorrow!

Are you a cheesecake lover?
If so, what’s your favorite kind (and don’t even think about tantalizing me with your favorite and not giving me the recipe thankyouverymuch).

    You have the most gorgeous delicious cheesecakes I have ever tasted and I am fussy about cheesecake. Have you ever made an almond one?
    Thanks so much for sharing.

    I have two favorites. This Red Velvet Cheesecake from Food Network Magazine: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/food-network-kitchens/red-velvet-cheesecake-recipe/index.html

    And this Mascarpone Cheesecake from Giada:

    I’ve been making those two for my cheesecake loving husband every since I found them. The mascarpone one is perfect for me because it’s not cloyingly sweet the way most cheesecake is for me. And the red velvet one marries his two favorite birthday cake choices. We love them!

    I have an obesession, I made about 100 mini cheesecakes for thanksgiving, all different flavors…I think I started a new tradition!

    Hi Mel. I love cheesecake. And, I love your website! I cook and bake a lot and I find that I am consistently pleased with the recipes that you feature (in particular, your baking.) The Toffee Caramel Crunch Cheesecake on Epicurious is phenomenal. I fold semisweet chocolate chips into the batter which takes it over the top. If you read the reviews, you will see that some people struggle with the consistency of the topping but don’t let that deter you. I often cook the caramel a bit less than recommended and pour it over as a sauce when serving. Try it; I promise that you won’t regret it! I have never served this and not had someone request the recipe.

  5. I just recently started to appreciate everything awesome about cheesecake. This post is such a tease, I just want to get in the kitchen and make these wonderful looking cheesecakes!

    I have made many of your cheesecake recipes, all with huge success. As with all of your recipes, Mel- your cheesecake recipes do not disappoint and are fool proof! Thanks for linking all of these fantastic recipes together!

    well..I was pretty famous when I made your chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake…and my husband loved me even more when I made the banoffee pie. But I also really like pumpkin cheesecake. With gingersnap crust…. Our best bites has a good couple of versions but mine is just simpler. 🙂

  8. Jen T says:

    My husband always makes me a New York Style cheesecake for my birthday. I request it every year. He is very good at it 🙂

    I have made the caramel apple cheesecake bars many times. We love them. My daughter’s favorite is the lemon no bake cheesecake, which we have made no less than ten times. I’ve never met a cheesecake I didn’t like.

  10. Nancy E. says:

    Your Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough cheesecake is my fav. Although we made that Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumble and it was delish too!

  11. Sam says:

    I am a chocolate cheesecake lover, but my husband’s absolute favorite is your Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake. I made it for him right after we got married and it is the only dessert he requests!

  12. Monica says:

    With the number of food blogs out there, it’s amazing to me when you find one that combines clever writing, good photography AND recipes that not only look good but that you want to make! I’ve made a couple of your recipes (the coconut pie is definitely a standout) and plan on making more – is there a cookbook in your future?

  13. Amber says:

    This is my favorite one: White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake http://allrecipes.com/recipe/white-chocolate-raspberry-cheesecake/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=white%20chocolate%20raspberry%20cheesecake&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=Home%20Page

    We actually prefer to make it in our muffin pan so that they bake quicker!

  14. Melissa says:

    I made the following Carrot and your Pomegranate cheesecake for thanksgiving.
    Oh the cheesecakes I could make if I had more time . . .

  15. Ben says:

    I love cheesecake and been trying to find new recipes to try out. Great post! Made my mouth start watering just looking at the pictures. I tried 2 of the recipes so far and planning on trying out the rest. So far, the best cheesecake recipe I’m came across is on Poptart Cooking: http://www.poptartcooking.com/recipe/perfect-cheesecake/

    I make that cheesecake at least once a month, it’s delicious and fairly easy to make.

  16. Linda says:

    Cheesecake….ahhh one of our favorite too. Especially Miss T – she always smiles when I saw “cheesecake”. Here’s a link to my favorite:
    I think it’s the versatility that makes them so much fun to bake!

  17. Lauren says:

    The cheesecake/ mousse pie you made around Thanksgiving was delicious. My family loved it. Thanks for another great recipe:)

    this recipe is to DIE for! (and with 4 pkgs of cream cheese in there, it really might kill you.) caramel pumpkin gingersnap cheesecake from the pioneer woman. so, so good.


  19. Christine says:

    Ah – like you I am a cheesecake lover and have collected favorite recipes for a decade or two. I’ll have to retype them but I will be sending you a host of my all-time favorites!! It’s the least I can do for all the inspiration you’ve given me over the past year…and of course, I’ll be taking these to try and add to the list. Now – do you want the white chocolate almond, pumpkin hazelnut, or eggnog cheesecake recipe to start? 🙂

  20. Valerie says:

    The Oreo cheesecake bites are calling my name. Thanks for all the great recipes! My husband actually does not mind eating at home now because food is getting edible 🙂

    Your Oreo cheesecake bites recipe is my FAVORITE Oreo cheesecake recipe.
