Dazzle your dessert table with this year’s hottest holiday cheesecakes awarded by Anna Olson!

Courtesy of Tre Stelle’s first Cheesecake Showdown, Canada’s baking sweetheart named the top three holiday cheesecakes that will satisfy your holiday sweet tooth.

As the not-so-secret ingredient to making the creamiest holiday desserts, Tre Stelle Cream Cheese is made with only four all-natural ingredients.  It’s also free of stabilizers or fillers so it folds into delicate ingredients for effortless holiday baking. 

Just ask Canadian bakers like Maggie Frith from The Magpie Cakery whose Triple Gingerbread Cheesecake with crystalized ginger was awarded best of the season by Olson!
