If you’ve ever wondered what makes a cheesecake creamy and lump-free, always start by letting the cream cheese rest at room temperature first instead of struggling to mix the ingredients with a bar of cream cheese that is rock hard and cold straight from the fridge. Using room temperature cream cheese helps in blending the remaining ingredients seamlessly for a smooth texture in cheesecakes.

In place of Graham crackers, you can also try other ones like Oreo crust, ginger snaps, ‘Digestive’ or ‘Rich Tea biscuits'. A few other choices of crusts you could try are ladyfingers, shortbread, Sandies cookies, or Sara Lee pound cake, yellow cake mix, Milk Arrowroots, vanilla wafers, soda crackers, etc. You can also add flavors to the cheesecake by mixing in instant pudding of your choice like key lime pudding, French vanilla, chocolate etc. You can also use fruit fillings like blueberry or strawberry or add toasted nuts like pecans and almonds that are healthy to incorporate. You can also use peanut butter chips, butterscotch or Skor toffee bits or even marshmallow fluff to make it a bit more fun. You can use mint extract or orange rind to make the cheesecake filling taste a bit exotic. These ingredients will help you change things up for newer flavors and adds exciting choices in desserts.
