I love a fancy dessert as much as the next person. I’ve had my fair share of macarons, and I’ve stood in awe of a perfectly constructed croquembouche. And yet, sometimes, simple is best. At least that’s how I feel about homemade cheesecake. A good piece of cheesecake will stand up to any fancy dessert out there, and Queen City Wine Dive (105 Park Central Sq., 417-429-9020) makes a great cheesecake. It’s so rich that it almost feels as if your fork moves in slow motion when it’s slicing through a piece. It’s creamy and sweet and just a bit tangy. The decadent cheesecake filling sits on top of a buttery graham cracker crust, and it comes with a choice of caramel or berry topping. However, I simply prefer it plain. Why mess with perfection?
