Whether rich and dense or silky and light or somewhere in between, cheesecakes come in many different styles. They’re wonderful desserts to make in spring and early summer as berries are coming into season.
1. Use Your Slow Cooker. Yep, your cooker does more than simmer meatballs and long-cook stew. The steam produced from the water bath and the cooker’s gentle heat create an ultra silky cake.
2. Switch up the cheese. For an extra tangy cake, use goat cheese in place of the usual cream cheese or add some funky, briny feta. Go Italian-style, and use ultra-creamy Robiola or ricotta, for a light and pleasantly grainy take on cheesecake.
