Want to know a secret? Almost every cheesecake recipe I share with you on the blog starts with the same basic cheesecake recipe – I just mix it up with a different crust, different fillings and different toppings. This basic cheesecake recipe is already perfection so I don’t have the desire to try another one. Why mess with perfection, right?! {wink}
