Our Favorite Cheesecake Recipes
Rhubarb-Raspberry Cheesecake Squares
Topping cheesecake with shimmering fruit is nothing new, but we spun this one in a fresh direction by swapping out the expected cherries for ruby-red rhubarb-raspberry gelee.
This cheesecake gets upgraded with a triple dose of chocolate. It's in the crust, in the filling, and over the top.
Mini Ginger-Almond Cheesecakes
No fancy pans are required to make these mini cheesecakes -- cupcake tins do the trick. What's more, only the crumb crust needs to be baked.
A graham-cracker crust and silky cream-cheese filling make this New York-style cheesecake a winner. (It's one of Martha's personal favorites!)Get the Classic Cheesecake Recipe
Intense oven-roasted strawberries are folded into a blend of tangy mascarpone and cream cheese, then covered with a rich vanilla layer -- proof that cheesecake can be both unexpected and delicious.
If you don’t feel like mixing cocktails, dole them out by the slice instead. The alcohol bakes out while cooking, so guests of all ages can enjoy this decadent treat.
With just 15 minutes of prep and no water bath required, this Italian-style recipe is one of our easiest cheesecakes.
Maple Cheesecake with Roasted Pears
Maple syrup flavors this luscious cheesecake inside and out, from the creamy filling to the broiled pears on top.
Mini Mocha Cheesecakes
These little cakes are not what they seem -- what looks like molten chocolate cake is actually cheesecake made with nonfat cottage cheese and a chocolate-wafer-cookie base.
Light Cherry Cheesecake
You'd never guess by the velvety texture that this cheesecake boasts less fat than the original, thanks to cottage cheese and lighter versions of cream cheese and sour cream.
Carrot Cheesecake with Marzipan Carrots
Cream-cheese frosting and warm spices, carrot cake's best features, are reimagined as a showstopping cheesecake topped with marzipan carrots.
No-Cook Red, White, and Blue Cheesecake
This berry pretty combo of fruit suits July 4th, but you can use whatever's best at the market -- and make it whenever you please.
No-Bake Spiderweb Cheesecake
Innocents are snared easily by a ganache spiderweb spun by a gumdrop spider with licorice-string legs. Try a bite, if you dare.
"Pumpkin Pie" Cheesecake
No need to choose between cake and pie on Thanksgiving -- this elegant swirl-topped treat has it all.
A molasses-gingerbread crust doubles as dough for the cookies that top this charming holiday dessert.
