It feels like Passover just ended, but we celebrate 33 days tonight with Lag Baomer and that means Shavuot is only a few weeks away!!
That means it's about time to start thinking about what you are going to cook.
The tradition is to eat dairy on Shavuot and we have almost 2,000 dairy recipes for you to browse that it is difficult to choose, but no Shavuot is complete without:
Cheesecake. Cheesecake comes in all shapes and sizes and flavors. Here are 6 favorites to help you narrow things down. Feel free to test them out before the holiday and don't forget to let us know how they turned out in the comments below.
You're starting with a parve cheesecake? Heaven forbid!!
This Parve Snickers Cheesecake is so delicious whether you keep it parve or make it dairy it deserved first placement. It comes out amazing every time and also keeps in the fridge for up to 5 days. When you take it out, just drizzle on the caramel and chocolate and top with peanuts and voila!!
These Mini Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecakes look pretty and they taste even better. The raspberry preserve adds a tart, yet sweet twist to the delicious cheesecake and the fresh raspberry on top is the perfect touch. They are also perfect for a big group, because who doesn't like their own personal cheesecake!
Although not a traditional cheesecake, our Strawberry 'Cheesecake' Parfait is another personal dessert that people love. It is no bake and the strawberries, cream cheese and whip cream are the perfect combination. It looks beautiful in any glass, but mix it up and try different shapes and sizes.
Not many people think low-fat when it comes to Shavuot, but this Low-Fat Lemon Cheesecake will change your mind. With 10 servings per recipe and only 196 calories per serving this cheesecake has the delicious taste of tart lemon and a great creamy texture.
Although this Cookie Dough Cheesecake with Milk Chocolate Ganache recipe takes a bit more work it is definitely worth a try. It has three layers, brownie crust, cookie dough and cheesecake, and a milk chocolate ganache layer on top. Every bite is better than the next!!
