Cheesecake also typically gains flavor as it ages, so any leftovers are great even after a few days if stored in the refrigerator. If you’ve ever wondered what makes a perfect cheesecake that has smooth, lump-free texture, then always keep in mind to bring the cream cheese to room temperature rather than working with a bar of cream cheese that is stone cold. This helps in blending the remaining ingredients seamlessly for a satin smooth texture in cheesecakes.

There are so many variations to making this dessert taste even more exciting and fabulous. Just follow what your palate loves the most. In the place of Oreo crust, you can also try others like Graham crackers, ginger snaps, ‘Digestive’ or ‘Rich Tea biscuits'. A few other crusts you could try are lady fingers, shortbread, Sandies cookies, Honey Nut Cheerios, or Sara Lee pound cake, yellow cake mix, Milk Arrowroots, vanilla wafers, soda crackers, etc. You can flavor the cheesecake by mixing in a pudding of your choice like key lime pudding or French vanilla. You can also use different flavors of fruit pie fillings like blueberry or strawberry. You can also garnish on top with kiwis, peaches or chopped nuts like pecans and almonds that are healthy to incorporate and gives this dessert a crunchy twist. Try adding crumbled Toblerone bar or Hershey's chocolate shavings. These ideas will help you change things up for newer flavors if you want. Whatever you decide to do, this cheesecake recipe will add that sweet charm the occasion.
