One of the songs my kids used to listen to when they were younger was about the Jewish holidays. I no longer recall most of the words (maybe I’ve blocked them from my mind after hearing them so many times!) but I do remember the singer cuing the children, "On Shavuot we love to eat…" and they would yell out "Cheesecake!!!!!!" (Yes, it was very loud). But they were correct and old or young, Shavuot cheesecake is our favorite treat and a memory we are creating for the holiday. My husband likes the plain classic cheesecake recipes (he also prefers vanilla ice cream!) whereas I prefer the more interesting variations. So here is a list of a few different cheesecake recipes, with something for everyone. And of course, we always welcome your contributions.
