It has about 7 months of recipes, if you made a cheesecake everyday.

I own at least three cheesecake cookbooks but this my favorite. The recipe instructions are clear and easy to follow even for those who are new to baking. Although not every recipe has a photo, the illustrations are stunning and you'll get a good idea of the finished products.
The book starts off with a great introduction that includes basic techniques and equipment, common ingredients and FAQ. Next are 200 recipes divided into twelve categories like Fresh Fruit, No-Bake and Savory Cheesecakes (you should never need another cheesecake recipe). Each recipe is accompanied by tips and variations as well as the author's valuable insights. Another plus for me is the baking technique does not require a waterbath which is tricky for a novice and can result in a soggy crust.
After searching everywhere online(including eBay) Amazon had the best price and you can even add a Fat Daddio cheesecake pan to your purchase to make sure you qualify for free shipping.

I got this book b/c dd absolutely loves cheesecake. Looks like this book has every kind of cheesecake in here you can imagine, including the basic New York Cheesecake. I decided to try something different to start with, and tried the Carrot Cake Cheesecake. I even went out and bought myself a set of springform pans. The recipe called for a 9" springform pan which I couldn't find, so I used the bigger size that's an almost 10" pan. Glad I did cuz the recipe filled the WHOLE pan! It's delicious & had a perfect blend of crushed pineapple, shredded coconut, and chopped pecans in the carrot cake part. I don't even like pineapple & coconut (!), but I couldn't taste them in here and the texture is wonderful!! The recipe makes you think it's going to be different layers but I think I made a mess of it as I muddled through. Maybe it doesn't look fancy, but it is delish!! Looking forward to trying other recipes. A 10" cheesecake is quite large and will go a long way; something good for company.

If you enjoy baking cheesecakes then you will enjoy this book! I have tried the following recipes and they turned out great: tiramisu, banana split, mango, and pineapple!
Easy to follow recipe and it even has an introduction on how to properly bake the cheesecakes.
note: the book doesn't mention baking in a waterbath but I do to prevent cracking.

Great cookbook with so many wonderful recipes! I found that cooking the cheesecakes at 350 was a bit high-they browned too quickly yet the inside was still very goopy. I prefer to cook my cheesecakes more slowly at 325. Use your judgement as any good cook does.

This is a great book. It has about 7 months of recipes, if you made a cheesecake everyday. I was amazed that the humble cheesecake could be made into so many flavors. I think that this is a great book, because of all the cheesecake flavors in it.

I absolutely love this cookbook and if you like cheesecake, this is for you. The recipes are great! There is huge variety from chocolate, fruit, holiday and other types of cheescakes. Most recipes are simple to follow along, the only downside is that most cakes in this book take a long time to make so be ready to dedicate a couple of hours to making one. It's well worth it though! I had my husband and several of our friends rave over a cheesecake I make from this book and out of the 50 recipes I've tried so far, there's only been one that's been so-so.

Ok, I bought this for my married daughter. Thanks to this book, cheesecakes have become her "trademark." She kept telling me about all the amazing cheesecakes she was making from here, and the accolades from whoever she makes it for. I was drooling, long distance.

I finally decided to buy myself one! What a fantastic cookbook! I just made the Lemon Curd Swirl Cheesecake for Easter, and everyone was raving over it. The crust is made out of Lemon Oreos, and is good as the cheesecake itself! My husband used to think he didn't like cheesecakes, but he is changing his mind big time!!!

I made the Cranberry Orange Cheesecake for Christmas - out of this world. The perfect sweet-tart combo.

Made the Milk Chocolate Cheesecake for company a couple months ago - they couldn't stop raving about it.

The appetizer cheesecakes are phenomenal, too.

Cheesecakes, I have decided, is the ultimate "make ahead" desert. Try baking a pie the "day before" - good luck. Cheesecakes actually MUST be made ahead, which is perfect for me.

George Geary is TOP NOTCH. He has been a visiting chef at the cooking school in my hometown, and he is fabulous.

I just bought one more copy, as a wedding shower present, along with a PUSH PAN, which i now prefer (and George Geary also prefers) over the spring form. They never leak, and never require any foil, etc.
