Cheesecake is a dessert consisting of pie crust and cheese filling (although sometimes it is made without crust). Despite its name, cheesecake isn't actually a cake; it may or may not be baked. The base can be made from pastry, sponge cake, graham crackers, or crushed cookies. The cheese filling typically consists of soft cheese (usually cream cheese), sugar, and eggs.
Cheesecake is often flavored. It comes in many flavors such as strawberry, key like, pumpkin, chestnut, toffee etc. Cheesecakes are sometimes topped with whipped cream, fresh or canned fruit, chocolate syrup, fruit sauce, nuts.
There are several major cheesecake varieties in North America. For instance, New York style cheesecake is a reach and creamy dessert that contains sour cream or heavy cream. Philadelphia style cheesecake is richer in flavor and lighter in texture. Other cheesecake types include Pennsylvania Dutch style cheesecake, farmer cheese cheesecake, country style cheesecake, and Chicago style cheesecake.
