Tall & Creamy Cheesecake

I am pretty tall so I don’t take the word tall lightly. And while this cheesecake from Dorie Greenspan’s Baking: From My Home to Yours is relatively tall for a cheesecake, it is not as tall as me. So there!


I followed Dorie’s basic recipe for the Tall & Creamy Cheesecake and added some fresh fruit on top that I then glazed with some apple preserves. It looks really colorful and festive and will surely be a stunner on the buffet at the New Year’s Eve party I am headed to shortly.

I haven’t cut into this baby yet since I think it would be bad form to bring a partially eaten cheesecake to a party. Silly manners. I will report back tomorrow on how the cheesecake tasted and what the other party goers thought of it.

This recipe was selected by Anne of Anne Strawberry. She has the recipe for this cheesecake posted at her blog. She did a great twist on the recipe making a beautiful Peppermint Bark Cheesecake.

Stop by the Tuesdays with Dorie blog roll to check out what the other bakers have cooked up recently!
