5. Baked Beans With Swiss Chard – Green leafy Swiss chard adds color to this brightened-up version of baked beans from Food Network Magazine.

Best 5 Cheesecake Recipes

by in Recipes, August 23rd, 2012

sour cream cheesecake
With a silky-smooth center and buttery, crumbly crust, cheesecake is a go-to dessert that’s a perennial favorite and lends itself to so many flavors, mix-ins and toppings. Filled with classic and new flavors, our top five cheesecake recipes below are simple to prepare and range from cakes to cookies.

5. Honey Ricotta Cheesecake – Instead of a traditional crust, Giada uses a classic Italian cookie, the biscotti, as the base. A mixture of clover honey and orange zest sweetens the cake, adding sweet and flowery notes to the ricotta-cream cheese mixture.

4. Sour Cream Cheesecake – Made with tangy sour cream, this simple recipe (pictured above) is a top cheesecake pick. To cut a clean slice, Alton suggests placing your knife into a hot water bath and wiping it dry each time you make a pass through the cake.
