The most popular cheese-based dessert is the cheesecake. The cheesecake made its debut in 776 B.C. at the first Olympic Games in Greece when it was served to athletes. Centuries later, immigrants brought the recipe to North America. In 1872 American cheese makers created cream cheese and in 1912 Philadelphia cream cheese was born, and is now the most popular form of cheese used in making cheesecakes. The New York-style cheesecake emerged in the 1920s in – where else? – New York.
