Banana Toffee Cheesecake
Smooth, creamy banana cheesecake sits atop a sugar cookie crust in this show-stopping dessert. It’s topped with a rich toffee and caramelized bananas.
Blueberry Skyr Cheesecake
Thick Icelandic yogurt, Skyr, is made into a creamy no-bake cheesecake that’s naturally high in protein and calcium. It is also gluten-free with a nut and date crust. This recipe is free of refined sugar, using maple syrup to sweeten everything up instead. Blueberries add drama and big flavour to this impressive dessert.
Cheddar Shortbread Cheesecake
This savoury cheesecake can be served as a creative appetizer with a side salad or as an ending to a warm winter meal.
Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake Squares
Enjoy all the delicious flavour of pumpkin with these eye-catching cheesecake squares guaranteed to wow guests.
Party perfect and oh-so-delicious, these cake pops are mini bites of New York cheesecake heaven. Cut into 2-bite portions and dip them in velvety dark, milk and white chocolate. You can make your own homemade cheesecake or to save some time, use a store-bought cake.
Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake
These mini swirl cheesecakes are filled with a creamy mascarpone in a crunchy chocolate crust. They’re simple to make with minimal oven time since only the crusts are baked.
Biscotti Ricotta Cheesecake
This cheesecake uses biscotti or cantucci as the base for the crust and the filling replicated a cannoli filling with hints of chocolate and citrus – so creamy, but light-tasting, too.
Not just any crust will do for an ethereal cheesecake like this one from Anna Olson. Mascarpone cheese with lavender and riesling are paired with a light sponge to create a beautiful dessert.
