While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Pretty please, with lots of cherries on top - April 23 is National Cherry Cheesecake Day!
What's creamy, tangy and sweet all over? Ah, yes, that would be one of the best food marriages in dessert: cherry cheesecake. The pure flavors of cherries mingling with the unique, smooth taste of cheesecake is something you'll be asking for beyond today.
Now, this can mean one of two things: You either like your regular cheesecake drowning in cherry compote or sauce, or you bake the cheerful cherry flavor right into your cheesecake. The best part is that cheesecake pairs well either way. Whether you use a ricotta or cream cheese base on your graham cracker crust, cheesecake can be a blank canvas or shine with a little embellishment.
Try a Black Forest cherry cheesecake, which combines the best of both worlds. Cherry-flavored chocolate cheesecake with a fresh cherry topping will send you sailing off into the sunset a much happier person than before you tasted this.
