When it comes to classic desserts, you really can't argue with cheesecake. It's creamy, sweet, rich, and, perhaps best of all, can come in a variety of flavors -- the Cheesecake Factory alone can serve as a testament to this.

Now, whether you prefer a traditional flavor or something a little bit more creative, you'll have a cheesecake recipe to make at home. Don't be daunted to make it at home -- despite how complex the flavors are, it's totally possible to master this dessert in your own kitchen. Once you do, we guarantee your guests will be impressed (and you will, too).

We've compiled 29 of our favorites, with three of the best highlighted below. Make sure to scroll down for the full slideshow of recipes!
