Spice Islands® Classic Vanilla Cheesecake
An American classic, cheesecake is a dessert that dates back through time to the old days of Greek and Roman times. It wasn't until the early 1900s in New York when the first cheesecake recipe made from cream cheese first popped onto the scene and the rest is history.
