The Dream Cheese Cake

This year for the holidays I decided to focus on comforting flavors that are simple and satisfying. Cheese cake is always a welcome dessert in my family. But I wanted to make it special.

Growing up, I spent summers listening for the icecream truck. When I ran out with my dollar clutched in my fist, only one thing was on my mind: Dreamsicle!!!!

This cheesecake evokes that familiar and comforting flavor combo of vanilla and orange. The orange is a soft caress and aroma that lingers.

Oooo, that looks good!! I have yet attempted to make a cheesecake. I have a few good recipes, I just haven't been motivated to it yet.

That looks quite delightful. You should make me one sometime (wink, wink). I don't even have a spring-form pan, can you believe it?

I love things with a light citrus flavor. What a tasty looking dessert!

That is truly a thing of beauty. I could marry that cheesecake.
