Cheesecake Recipes

Postby HazelG » Wed May 12, 2010 5:07 am

Hi,

With Shavuot approaching, my thoughts turn to cheesecake :D
I see that the Culinary Corner seems to deal places to eat/ drink etc.
I wondered if it was appropriate to post recipes here? I have 3 great recipes for cheesecakes (2 baked, one fridge).
If anyone wants these recipes let me know...or if it's okay to post them here, I will.

Any suggestions for the Best (International) Cheesecake Prize?

Happy baking
Hazel

Hazel, Hi....

(a) Post away. The recipes will be much appreciated.

(b) Best cheesecake ever.......most certainly in New York City and in my experience the cheesecake at the Royal Pastry Shop on West 72nd Street (alas, now closed for nearly 20 years)
