July 30 is National Cheesecake Day!
Cheesecake is a rich, creamy dessert that consists of a soft cheese, such as cream cheese, filling on a pastry base, such as a graham cracker crust. You can eat cheesecake plain or with a variety of toppings, such as fruit, nuts or chocolate or fruit-flavored drizzle. Cheesecake is also made in a variety of flavors, such as chocolate, pumpkin, raspberry, white chocolate and rocky road.
