If you're looking for something to do today then get your taste buds ready for a celebration because it's National Cherry Cheesecake Day!  Oh yes, the classic combination of yum!  Let's get right into celebrating National Cherry Cheesecake Day!


I, for one, don't have to ask why this is a holiday because I love cherry cheesecake and every time I slide the rich flavor of cheesecake and cherries across my tongue I feel like I have to be celebrating something. So why not have a day set aside just for celebrating this amazing creation, right? But if you've never had it before, you might still question the reason for this holiday so let me show you why it's so good.  To make a cheesecake you usually start out by crushing graham crackers into the base of a springform pan. The spring form just holds all the liquid contents in place so that it forms a nice circular cake as it bakes.

Then you can just pop the form off it when it's ready to eat. But let's not get ahead of ourselves... When you're done with the crust on the bottom you whip up delicious contents like cream cheese, butter, sugar, eggs, heavy whipping cream, sour cream or milk and then pour it into the form.  Then you bake it for a while and then pop it in your fridge overnight to cool and to create the perfect texture. Then you pop the springform off it, give it a nice coating with cherry pie filling, or your own homemade mixture, and then slice into dessert heaven! Trust me, if today is the first time you try cheesecake, you're probably not going to be able to eat just one slice.  I know I had two!


So how can you celebrate today?  Well, the easiest way is going to be to head out to a restaurant and order a slice for dessert. It's the perfect way to end any meal and it's a relaxing celebration! May I suggest that you head to The Cheesecake Factory if you want some really good cheesecake? If you do head to The Cheesecake Factory then there's nothing wrong with sampling other flavors too, just make sure you give cherry a chance. It is its day after all!  You could even pick up some ready-made cakes or individual slices at your local grocery store if you want. Or you could scan the shelves for some no-bake cheesecake mixes. This doesn't take quite as long to make as real cheesecake and it tastes just as good. Philadelphia Cream Cheese even makes a cheesecake filling in a tub that you just spread on a graham cracker crust and pop it in the fridge and it's ready to eat in a couple hours. Just don't forget the cherry pie topping!  Or, if you planned ahead, you could make your own cheesecake from scratch. It's not that making a cheesecake takes that long it's just that you have to let it sit in the fridge for a good amount of time before you slice into it. But, by making it yourself, you can sculpt the flavors so that it tastes exactly how you want it to. I've made a cheesecake before with white chocolate in it. Mhmm, that pleases the tongue!  Regardless of how you decide to celebrate, I hope it's a delicious day for you!
