Cheesecake Slice, Plain

July 31, 2012


Cheesecakes are a combination of a young, soft cheese (think cream cheese, marscapone, or ricotta), eggs, and sugar.  Variants utilize sour cream, heavy cream, buttermilk, or other dairy.  They can be baked or unbaked.  The crust is frequently not much more than crushed graham crackers.

Regional variations and the possible auxiliary accouterments further multiply the number of permutations a “cheesecake” can be.

The bare-bones cheesecake illustrated here is a baked cream cheese filling with a graham cracker crust.
