Cheesecake recipes come in many different varieties, from very airy and fluffy to creamy and heavy. This recipe is somewhere in between. Neither too creamy and heavy, nor the very light version. I like a fruity touch and just puree some strawberries which can be served as a sauce. Blueberries or raspberries are also a delicious alternative. The dough can be frozen easily. I always prepare the large portion and keep half of it if I make a small cake.
