The One With All The Cheesecakes!

I am not really crazy about cheesecake, but if it’s from Zanze’s, I am willing to make an exception!  Mr. Zanze has been making cheesecake for over 36 years, so it’s no wonder his cheesecakes have won me over.  Their cheesecakes are not your typical dense New York style cheesecakes.  They have an airy mousse texture that melts in your mouth (somewhere along the line of ice cream and whipped cream). There is also a light sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs on the top and bottom of the cake that blends harmoniously with the creamy cheesecake.  I am officially hooked on these cheesecakes.  I was looking forward to having it last night, but my husband had polished off the last 2 pieces before I got home.  How could he!!!  Things you tolerate for love…

Next time, we have to try the flavored cheesecake.

My husband and I can definitely finish the small cheesecake all on our own if we are hungry.  Glad we got the medium last time.

The lady before us let me take a photo of her cherry cheesecake.  Isn’t it gorgeous?!

Look at how happy the baker is!  No wonder the cheesecake tastes amazing!

Mr. Zanze demonstrated how to use the fishing line to cut the cheesecake.

I made some apricot and strawberry sauce for this cheesecake, it was the perfect match!
