How to Make Philadelphia Cheesecake Recipes

Do you know how to make Philadelphia cheesecake recipes? Most of my cheesecakes are made with Philadelphia cream cheese. You may have noticed that most of the recipes here in the United States are made with cream cheese where in other countries ricotta, cottage cheese and others are very popular. I like to use the best quality possible when I go to all the trouble of making something so this is why I choose the Philadelphia brand of cream cheese.


There is a story to why we Americans use cream cheese in our recipes instead of other cheeses. Philadelphia cream cheese is an American original making it possible for us to learn how to make Philadelphia cheesecake recipes.

This delicious dessert comes in many sizes of cheesecake recipes from huge party size to mini cheesecakes.
