National Cherry Cheesecake Day Today; Know Its History

New Delhi: April 23rd recognizes the food holiday National Cherry Cheesecake Day. The cheese-based delicacy has long been a favourite but has changed in many ways over the years. Today, we most often imagine cherry cheesecake with a graham cracker or pastry crust, filled with cream cheese, and topped with nutrient-rich cherries — with a drizzle of thick cherry sauce to top it off. Our mouths are watering just thinking of it!

History of National Cherry Cheesecake Day

While cheesecake has a history that dates back many centuries, it wasn’t until more modern times that it was the sweet treat that most people are familiar with today. This was very much influenced by the American creation of cream cheese, which is a key ingredient in cheesecake.

The New York-style cheesecake, with the graham cracker crust, is what most people are thinking of (and yearning for!) as they consider what a cherry cheesecake is like, and that recipe seems to have made an appearance in the early 20th century. As for who the genius was who added cherries? No one quite knows. But their little garnish turned into something that deserves a whole day to celebrate it: National Cherry Cheesecake Day!
