You'll be the star of any holiday gathering when you show up with one of these festive winter cheesecakes. They're pretty enough to show off as party centerpieces, whether you present them as whole cheesecakes or on a platter as easy-to-serve mini treats.

1. White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

A stunning white and red cheesecake, this top-rated favorite is almost too pretty to cut into. "An EXCELLENT cheesecake! Made it for my family Christmas dinner and everyone just raved about it! Would not change a thing on this recipe! I plan to make it for New Year's Eve!" -- LMACLAREN

2. Eggnog Cheesecake III

A touch of rum gives this eggnog cheesecake a bit of a kick. If you want to take this to the next level of delicousness, try making your own eggnog and set some aside just for this recipe.  Saint Louis Cook says, "This may be the best cheesecake I've ever made. I brought this to our work holiday party and EVERYONE raved about it. Not too sweet, great eggnog flavor."
