If you're here and have even an inkling of an appetite and you're trying to eat healthily, this collection of cheesecakes will be your undoing. Seriously. Don't say we didn't warn you and your cheesecake-loving soul.

Cheesecake combines two great things in this world (cheese and cake, obviously) to create heaven in a mouthful. Silky smooth, creamy, just the right sweetness, slightly tangy and that crumbly biscuit base... Swoon.

It's time to indulge. Here are nine recipes to choose from -- a simple baked cheesecake, lemon curd, intense chocolate, caramel and vanilla, peanut butter, blueberries and more.

Enjoy a slice (or more).
