History of White Chocolate Cheesecake
The first recorded recipe for white chocolate cheesecake appears in Fannie Merritt Farmer’s 1896 Boston Cooking School Cookbook. The recipe calls for a “rich cheese cake” made with cream cheese, eggs, and sugar, flavored with vanilla and lemon juice, and baked in a graham cracker crust.
In the early 1900s, Philadelphia became known for its cream cheese, which was used in many cheesecake recipes of the time. It wasn’t until the 1950s that white chocolate began to be used in cheesecake recipes. The first known recipe for white chocolate cheesecake appeared in an ad for Baker’s Chocolate in 1956.
Since then, white chocolate cheesecake has become a popular dessert choice, especially around holidays like Easter and Christmas. There are many variations of the recipe, including those made with a graham cracker crust or a shortbread crust, and those that are no-bake or have a chocolate ganache topping.
