The Best Cheesecake Recipes

Whether you’re looking for something classic or a creative variation, these creamy, dreamy cheesecakes are sure to fit the bill.

Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake Bars

These gorgeous bars are much easier to prepare than a whole cheesecake—but just as tasty. For starters, they have a speculoos cookie crust (what cookie butter is made from), which pairs deliciously with the spiced pumpkin filling. If you have gingersnaps or graham crackers laying around, feel free to sub those in instead. To make these just the right amount of sweet, we swirled in some of the tangy original cheesecake mixture, which also creates that pretty swirl on top. Bring them to a holiday potluck, or serve them at Thanksgiving for a stress-free dessert. They'll keep in the fridge overnight, so feel free to make them a day in advance.
