Recipes for Cheesecake.

A cheesecake is basically a baked custard. There are many recipes for this dessert with ingredients varying from cream cheese to ricotta cheese to a healthier cottage cheese (for a 'lighter' version). The crust on a cheesecake is optional. Some cheesecakes have a crust comprised of crushed cookies (ranging from the traditional graham cracker crust, a shortbread crust, chocolate cookie crust-the possibilities are endless)and some cheesecakes have no crust.

Once the basic recipe and technique is learned, the cheesecake can then serve as a backdrop for many variations. Below is a basic cheesecake recipe with measurements that can easily be doubled if needed to make a bigger cheesecake.
