Summer Cheesecakes: Berries, Cherries & Oh-So-Very Good!
A good cheesecake can be hard to find. Too often this dessert is a dense, heavy brick — more like a wedge of actual cheese than an airy yet creamy treat.
But really good cheesecake (the kind that puts you in a kind of heavenly, close-eyed daze at first bite) is actually one of the most delicious desserts ever concocted. When made right, the smooth texture and sweet flavors of a good cheesecake are unbeatable. It’s scrumptious just plain, of course, but why not gild the lily with any number of seasonal toppings, add-ins and clever crusts?
The cheesecake recipes we’ve got here are all great examples, everything from a classic New York–style cheesecake to tart-and-sweet (and low-cal!) Key Lime Cheesecake Bars to a completely decadent Chocolate-Cherry Cheesecake.
We love how great any number of fresh summer fruits taste in (and on) cheesecake, and we’ve made sure to give you plenty of fruit options. Rest assured though: whichever recipe you choose, your results will be creamy, sweet, light and completely irresistible.
