Cheesecake. Is there a better dessert? It's even Biblical!

According to Wikipedia:
"Cheesecake is a large family of sweet, cheese-based cakes.
Cheesecakes are generally made with soft, fresh cheeses. Other ingredients such as sugar, eggs, flour, and cream are often mixed in as well. Typically, the filling covers a crust, which may be pastry, cookie, or digestive biscuit.The word cheesecake is also used to describe the creamy, cheesy flavour of the dessert. In this usage, there are cheesecake yogurts, ice creams, brownies, and cookies. There are also savoury cheesecakes, often flavoured with blue cheese and served as hors d'oeuvres or with accompanying salads.
Cheesecakes are strongly associated with the Jewish feast of Shavuot, when Jews consume dairy food. The association of milk with Judaism can be traced back to the Song of Songs, which in the Jewish tradition is interpreted as an allegory of the relationship between God and the Children of Israel ("honey and milk are under thy tongue" 4:11, King James translation)."
