EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

You can use fresh marjoram instead of the thyme if you like.

This cheesecake is perfect to tote to a gathering. Just leave it in the springform pan until you're ready to serve. Pack your garnishes separately, and decorate at the party.

Arrange the cheesecake on a pretty platter. Top with roasted red pepper cutouts of poinsettia leaves and the thyme sprigs.
