Cheesecake is the one dessert that my husband and I agree on. We love coming up with fun ways to incorporate the creamy goodness into new desserts and treats, so we wanted to share 20 Amazing Cheesecake Recipes with you for National Cheesecake Day.
CLICK HERE TO PIN THESE RECIPES FOR LATER!
Cheesecake is one of these desserts that is so versatile because you can add cream cheese to just about any sweet treat. You can make it into one large cheesecake, into bite-sized cheesecakes, no bake cheesecake, bars, brownies, and even breakfast.
Yup, I said cheesecake for breakfast. It's a legit thing. I believe in it so much that I added a whole chapter of breakfast cheesecakes in my cookbook Cheesecake Love. Trust me, you need that book and a set of springform pans in your life if you love cheesecake like we do.
Cheesecake can also be added to cookies, dip, pastries, cake, or pies. Believe me, if there is a way to cheesecake a sweet treat, I am going to find that way. Yes, cheesecake-ing all the things is my life mission. We all have to have goals, right?
Now after deciding what shape your cheesecake is going to be, you get to choose your flavor combo. Do you have a craving for mint, chocolate, fruit, cookies, sprinkles, cake batter, pumpkin, or caramel? There is really no wrong way to do cheesecake in my book.
Well, unless you decide to put ALL those flavors into one cheesecake. That's not going to work out so well for you. Just sayin'.
I hope you find a few new easy cheesecake recipes here that you want to try soon. It would be wrong to let national cheesecake day slip by without celebrating it. Just sayin...

Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction
Cheesecake is a favorite around here! So many great ways to enjoy it!
I'm not big on those subscription boxes of every sort that you see nowadays, but I believe I would be helpless in the face of (er...make that able to understand the benefits of) a cheesecake subscription box service that featured every single one of these recipes in their turn!
Well done, Jocelyn!
Cheese cake. I'm in.
