National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day Cheesecake is such a popular dessert that there are several cheesecake-themed food days in the United States. In addition to National Cheesecake Day, observed annually on July 30, Americans celebrate holidays dedicated to specific cheesecake varieties. For example, National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day is celebrated on March 6.

Cheesecake is a sweet dessert that consists of a crust, which is typically made from crushed cookies or crackers, and filling made of soft cheese. Depending on the recipe, cheesecake may be baked or unbaked. The texture of the filling may vary from thick to light and airy.

The earliest mentions of cheesecake date back to ancient Greece and Rome. Of course, ancient pies made with soft cheese bore little resemblance to modern cheesecakes, but food historians believe that the history of cheesecake began back then.

Modern cheesecake is believed to have originated in England. The first mention of the word “cheesecake” dates back to the 15th century. The first cheesecake recipe that resembles modern ones emerged sometime around the 18th century.

Cheesecake was brought to America by English immigrants. The ubiquitous cream cheese cheesecake filling was developed in the United States thanks to William Lawrence, who accidentally created cream cheese while trying to recreate Neufchâtel, a soft, mold-ripened French cheese. Over time, bakers began to use cream cheese in cheesecake filling due to its delicate texture.

As we’ve already mentioned above, cheesecake can be baked or unbaked. Filling for baked cheesecake is usually made with eggs. Unbaked cheesecakes are made without eggs to prevent Salmonella infection; they are prepared with gelatin and refrigerated before serving.

Cracks on top are a common flaw of baked cheesecakes. To keep the filling from forming cracks and to ensure that your cheesecake is evenly baked, you can bake it in a water bath (a pan of hot water). You should also keep the oven door closed during baking and let the cheesecake cool gradually.

As we’ve already mentioned above, there are countless cheesecake varieties: chocolate cheesecake, caramel cheesecake, cherry cheesecake, blueberry cheesecake, strawberry cheesecake, raspberry cheesecake, pumpkin cheesecake, cranberry cheesecake, and even peppermint bark cheesecake.

White chocolate cheesecake is one of the most popular varieties of the dessert because white chocolate works well with cream cheese filling, giving it a subtle vanilla flavor. As a rule, white chocolate is melted, cooled slightly and gently mixed with cream cheese. White chocolate cheesecake can be baked or unbaked. It can be garnished with melted white chocolate or with white chocolate chips or shavings.

The best way to celebrate National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day is to treat yourself to a slice or two of this delicious dessert. You can try making it yourself or pop in to the nearest coffee shop or bakery that sells white chocolate cheesecake. Don’t forget to snap a picture before eating and share it on social media with the hashtag #NationalWhiteChocolateCheesecakeDay.
