Christmas cheesecake recipes that will make a wonderful alternative Christmas dessert, including nougat cheesecake and a baked orange and cranberry cheesecake

Find Christmas cheesecakes to impress your guests as they tend to make a fail-safe festive dessert – while opinion is often divided when it comes to Christmas pudding or Christmas cake, cheesecakes are always a family favourite.

Some people enjoy the texture of a classic cheesecake while others prefer the slightly lighter texture if it’s baked – either way, all these recipes are easy to make and look stunning, leaving your dinner guests wondering how you’ve had time to put them together.

Many of these Christmas cheesecake recipes feature seasonal fruits like cranberries, nectarines and apples and or go for frozen fruit as a great addition to the traditional cheesecake recipe. Our pick of Christmas cheeseake recipes features many that can be made a day or so in advance and topped with fruit or nuts right before serving for wow factor, making Christmas prep that little bit easier. Choose from a lighter recipe that melts on the palate to finish off a heavy Christmas lunch or something a bit richer, darker and sweeter that feels really festive.

This black cherry and Kirsch cheesecake (pictured) is so festive. It’s perfectly creamy with a wonderfully crumbly base that will really make your Christmas extra special. Many people don’t enjoy Christmas pudding, so this makes a fantastic alternative.

You could also customize the recipes and use your favourite biscuits in
the base – if you’d like to add an extra bit of richness to your
cheesecake, use chocolate biscuits instead of plain, for example. But
remember, part of what makes a cheesecake such a wonderful dessert is
its simplicity.
