What is Your Favorite Cheesecake?

If you had to pick your favorite cheesecake, what would it be? I think for me anything with peanut butter, or chocolate. I have enjoyed a pumpkin flavored cheesecake but it was quite rich. Sometimes to give us a treat without slaving in the kitchen I have purchased a cheesecake sampler from our local grocery store. But as you know homemade is always the BEST when it comes to any dessert.
