As it is customary to eat dairy food on the Jewish holiday of Shavuot
, it is no wonder that cheesecake has become the most popular Shavuot dessert. This page offers a variety of cheesecake recipes - including Fast, Vegan, Low Fat, Gourmet, and more - so you can find the cheesecake recipe that best meets your holiday menu needs.
Nechama Cohen, Founder and Executive Director of the Jewish Diabetes Association (JDA) and author of EnLITEned Kosher Cooking, shares her healthy recipe for low carb, low fat Baked Cheese Cake. Nechama writes that the recipe has been a Shavuot family tradition for as long as she can remember.
This is one of my favorite cheese cakes and as cheese cakes go it is quite low in calories though this has never stopped anyone from licking the plate and asking for more. This cake is a must in my house for Shavuot. I make it without a crust but you can always add a cookie/butter crust of your choice (crush around 200 grams of plain cookies and mix with about 75 grams of melted butter).
The guests have been invited, and the holiday is approaching fast. Why not lessen the load of holiday preparation by preparing dessert a few days in advance? This delicious Chocolate Cheesecake, which can be kept in the freezer for up to a week, should be served frozen.
This is one of those "gotta have the recipe" recipes that I got from a friend. Everyone, including my "I don't like cheesecake" son, loved this delicious cake. I call this Israeli Cheesecake because its main ingredient is Israeli white cheese (Gevina Levana).
In my personal opinion, it isn't really dessert if it doesn't include at least some chocolate. About.com Guide to Desserts and Baking has fortunately put this recipe for Chocolate Cheesecake online.
