“I think the ultimate dessert anytime of the year is cheesecake,” writes Darlene Brenden of Salem, Oregon. “I worked at a specialty bakery that offered 23 different cheesecakes, but not a chocolate cranberry flavor like this one. I like to top it with a thick chocolate glaze for a finishing touch.”
