Cookie or biscuit base: Place the cookies or biscuits into a food processor, and crush them into fine crumbs. Mix in the melted butter, pack into the mold, and chill in the fridge to harden.
Batter: Add all of the ◎ ingredients to the food processor, and spin for about 2 minutes until smooth.
Pour the batter from Step 2 into the mold, and bake in an oven preheated to 170°C for 40~45 minutes.
Right after baking, run a knife around the edges. Chill to set.
Remove from the mold, and it is done!
Cut into your desired portion sizes and enjoy!
I placed a ramekin filled with hot water on the baking pan to steam-bake the cake. The results were nice and moist!
Here I replaced the cream cheese with cottage cheese, and added liquor soaked blueberries. It tastes so light that you can keep eating several slices!
For Halloween: Use 300 g pumpkin, 2 egg, 100 g Oreo cookies, 50 g butter, and bake in an oven at 180°C for 45 minutes.
The pumpkin cheesecake was pretty good too! Halloween colors!
Story Behind this Recipe
When I was a child, my mother taught me this cheesecake recipe. My husband loves it, and I bake it for his birthday.
- Butter the mold before use. - After baking, the cake will be very puffy, but it will deflate with time. - This is plenty delicious even without a biscuit crust! - If you let the cake rest overnight before eating, then it will become moist and even more delicious.
