|What is Cheesecake Day?|
National Cheesecake Day, like Pizza Day and Hot Dog Day, is an informal yearly celebration of a delectable and highly popular food. This rich desert is made in dozens of different flavors and varieties, with fruits, nuts, caramel, peanut butter, and chocolate as favored inclusions. Simple cheesecake mixes feature a pudding-like filling with a graham cracker crumb crust that is chilled in the refrigerator to set and serve.
More decadent versions are made with cream or ricotta cheese filling in a shortbread or pastry style crust that is baked in the oven. Cheesecakes are traditionally prepared in a spring form pan that is removed prior to serving for a picture perfect presentation that highlights the stratified layers of the desert. Cheesecake Day is an ideal occasion to try your hand at preparing a delicious cheesecake-or swinging by your favorite bakery to pick up an expertly crafted confection to share with friends and family.
