FAQs

Can I use any cream cheese for Philadelphia cheesecake?

Yes, you can use any cream cheese but we suggest you use full-fat cream cheese for the better whipping. You can also use sour cream or heavy cream to get a soft texture in the cheesecake.

Should the cream cheese be at room temperature before using it?

It’s better to whip the cheese whose temperature is at room temperature. If your cream cheese is in the refrigerator, take it out of the fridge at least one hour before to get better results. 

Can I use a different crust for my cheesecake instead of a graham cracker crust?

Yes, you can use a different crust for cheesecake instead of a Graham cracker crust. It totally depends upon your desire and dietary requirements. You can also use granola, crushed nuts, and crushed pretzels to make a savory crust. 

Can I make a no-bake Philadelphia cheesecake?

No, I will not suggest you go for no-bake Philadelphia cheesecake because baked cheesecake has a more fluffy, moist, dense, and smooth texture in comparison to bake Philadelphia cheesecake.
