Our Favorite Holiday Cheesecakes

Celebrate with cheesecake this holiday season.

The holidays aren’t just a time for apple pie, turkey, and mashed potatoes. We’re mixing up the dessert table this year with our festive and utterly delicious Holiday Cheesecake recipes. Our collection includes decadent Pumpkin-Pecan Cheesecake—a marriage of two of our favorite holiday pies finished off with a rich praline topping. For your elegant Christmas party, our Red Velvet Cheesecake-Vanilla Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting is finished with delicate white chocolate curls that are almost too pretty to eat. Like the sound of a white cake with a delicious cheesecake surprise within? Try our Red-Velvet White Chocolate Cheesecake. It was the cover cake on our December 2013 issue and continues to receive rave reviews. If you’re looking for an ooey, gooey, comforting confection, try our Caramel Apple-Brownie Cheesecake. It’s topped with a mound of crave-worthy caramel apples. Trust us, you won’t be able to resist. For those that can’t pass up the combination of chocolate and peppermint around the holidays, look no further than our Chocolate-Peppermint Cheesecake. After it’s baked, we top it off with a hearty mount of Whipped Peppermint Cream before finishing with crushed peppermint candies. It’s the stuff of Christmas dreams. Our Praline-Crusted Cheesecake is a classic with a Southern spin that will be a winner with every crowd. When you’re looking to put that canned pumpkin to use, Pumpkin Cheesecake might be just what you’re looking for.
