Confession time. I don’t like cheesecake. It’s yucky.
Let that sink in a minute.
I know, I know. The horror! I just find it too. . . .rich, cream cheesy, dense, cloying. I could go on. Something about cream cheese in sweet stuff that I can’t get behind. Occasionally I run into a cream cheesy dessert or pastry that’s edible but usually not. (Actually there is one cheesecake I did like and I had it years ago. It was a pumpkin version that my girlfriend, R, made. And surprisingly, she doesn’t like cheesecake either!)
