There's a lot to be said about a cheesecake. For one, there's nothing else like it. It's so rich in flavor, with the cream cheese slow cooked in the oven. It's lightly sweetened, as in my opinion, the best desserts are. The crust is just hearty enough to hold it together, but it doesn't over power the flavor one little bit. But most importantly, it's down right delicious! I love a classic cheesecake. And this one is good enough to be eaten all on its own. No berries or coolis in sight. As classic as this cheesecake is, I've tweaked it just a bit, obviously, to make it a little lighter. It still packs amazing flavor and texture, it's just on the fluffier side, and who doesn't like a fluffy cheesecake?
