Cream Cheese Frosting - This basic frosting recipe should be a staple in your recipe file. Fantastic on carrot cake, but works well with lots of other desserts too! Be creative!

Individual Cheesecakes - A very nice change. Small bite size pieces of cheesecake you can snack on anytime, no need to dirty any dishes.

Pumpkin Streusel Cheesecake Bars - Chocolate and caramel drizzles add a new flavor punch to creamy pumpkin-oat bars.

Chocolate Pound Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing - Can't get enough of that chocolate, can we?

Chocolate Covered Pretzel Cheesecake - I love cream cheese and chocolate. It's a great combination. And what a great ending to a great dinner with your special Valentine!

Chocolate Ribbon Cheesecake - A chocolate cheesecake is an impressive alternative to a vanilla cheesecake. This recipe calls for a walnut and graham cracker crust but you could use chocolate cookies if you prefer and leave out the nuts. Fresh berries are delightful with chocolate cheesecake but we chose to drizzle this cheesecake with chocolate syrup as we did with our Turtle Cheesecake.

Lemon Cheesecake Bars with Graham Cracker Bottom
- Very yummy especially with tea, coffee or cold milk.

Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies - I took Fudgey Walnut Brownies, omitted the nuts, and swirled cream cheese through the batter. The result is another fudgey brownie made even more decadent with cream cheese. If you are looking for a dark, rich, fudgey brownie that is different, this is it. If you like more cream cheese, try the variation. This fancy-looking brownie is easy to make. It is a simple two-step recipe. Mix the batter for the brownies in one bowl and the cream cheese mixture in another. Pour the brownie batter and the cream cheese mixture into the pan in stages then swirl it with a spatula.

Apricot Cream Cheese Thumbprints - Apricots add a sweet touch to these cookies.

Raspberry Cream Cheese Muffins - These moist and delicious muffins would be perfect with a cup of tea. For a skinnier version, low-fat cream cheese can be substituted.
