The most rustically stunning and delicious cheesecake also happens to be super simple, thanks to this easy holiday-ready recipe from L.A.’s pastry and baking queen Valerie Gordon, chef-owner of Valerie Confections.

You’ve probably seen Gordon’s creations on social media thanks to her ability to make desserts that are very Instagram-ready—and if you’re lucky enough to, swing by her locations in L.A.’s Koreatown and Silverlake neighborhoods to see them IRL.

Created in San Sebastian Spain, Basque cheesecake is famous for its rustic good looks, deep sweet-savory flavor, and creamy texture. For this recipe, Gordon used Clover Sonoma, which we love for many reasons: They are American Humane Certified, BCorp Certified, and at least 5% of their profits are donated through their Clover Cares program, so you can feel really good about indulging in this dessert.
