My favorite recipe is from a well-loved Better Homes and Gardens Dessert Book @1968, It calls for 5-8 oz pkgs of cream cheese and a load of cream! Its rich and for kicks I make 3 different toppings to satisify my family. A hot fudge sauce, blueberries, strawberries, and sometimes, mango and pineapple.

Entirely seasonally inappropriate, but absolutely wonderful. Perhaps you are planning ahead for Thanksgiving?

The best cheesecake I have ever had was made by Food52er inpatskitchen's mother! Nothing has ever lived up to it since I was a girl. I don't think Patti will mind my posting the link to the recipe since she posted it on her blog. http://inpatskitchen.blogspot...

I'm not a fan of cheesecake, but my boyfriend adored the Icebox Lemon Cheesecake that I made him for his birthday. It's a Cook's Country recipe and it looks like it's from 2010 so they no longer offer the recipe on their website, but a whole lot of people have written variations of it on their blogs (http://www.melskitchencafe... is the recipe, but with a graham cracker crust rather than one made of crushed lemon cookies).
Anyway, if you're looking to maybe not have to deal with over-cooking and cracking and water baths and a hot kitchen it's really nice to only have to bake the crust. And I promise the texture is silky and cheesecakey rather than gelatinous and odd.

I can't seem to get a whole slice of cheesecake down, ever....but I LOVE yogurt pie such as the one found in Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. Has a lovely salty-nutty-sweet crust and the filling is amazingly light and creamy all at once. It's also really simple--yogurt, eggs, a little cornstarch, lots of sugar. I recommend using some pure maple syrup (maple goes nicely with anything creamy, so if you go all out cheesecake, try to work it in).
