“I’ve yet to meet a cheesecake I didn’t like,” says Deirdre Cox of Kansas City, Missouri, who created this Raspberry Cheesecake Float recipe. “The flavors here of cream cheese and raspberries create an ideal combination. Although ice cream floats are summery, I like this treat so much that I whip it up during the winter, too.”

The recipe is below.

Thanks, Dierdre, and thanks to Taste Of Home for sharing the recipe with us.

And thanks to whoever established National Cheesecake Day, on July 30th (National Ice Cream Soda Day is June 20th).

According to Days Of The Year, the first National Cheesecake Day was celebrated in 1985—a fact that was picked up somewhere and appears on many websites, with no further information as to who or where.

We tried to find out. We discovered that in 1985, Philadelphia Cream Cheese published a Cream Cheesecake Cookbook.

This chocolate chip cheesecake recipe appeared in a Philadelphia Cream Cheese ad in 1985.

Is there a connection to National Cheesecake Day? We’ll keep on looking.
