National Cherry Cheesecake Day

National Cherry Cheesecake DayNational Cherry Cheesecake Day

National Cherry Cheesecake Day takes place on April 23rd to celebrate the long history of this delectable dessert. Cherry cheesecake can be made by mixing cherries or cherry syrup directly into the cheese filling or by adding them on top of a plain slice of cheesecake. 

A primitive form of the dessert was served in ancient Greece as far back as 2,000 B.C. Roman armies brought the dish with them as they swept across Europe and the British Isles in 1,000 A.D. From there, cheesecake became a widespread favorite throughout Europe.

The modern version of cheesecake was developed in the late 1870s and quickly became the driving force behind the mass production of Philadelphia Kraft cream cheese. It was during this time that the New York-style cheesecake was perfected using cheese, cream, egg, and sugar. 

Adding cherries to the creamy treat can impart some of the beneficial nutrients found in the tart fruit. They are full of antioxidants and anit-inflammarory properties that have been shown to protect against cellular damage and heart disease.

Try your hand at making your own cheesecake with either homemade or storebought crust, or just hit up your favorite cafe to indulge in the opulence that is cherry cheesecake.
