No-bake Cheesecake with Fruit and a Hint of Rum

No-bake Cheesecake with Fruit and a Hint of Rum

This is a no-bake cheesecake with homemade fruits marinated in rum. This is irresistible for rum-lovers.

Ingredients: 18 cm circular mold

Cookie crust:
Plain biscuits
120 g
Butter
60 g
Cheesecake batter:
Cream cheese
150 g
Granulated sugar
60 g
Lemon juice
2 teaspoons
Egg yolks
2 large
Milk
120 ml
Heavy cream
100 ml
Dried fruits soaked in rum
100-150 g
Gelatin
7 g
Water
3 tablespoons

Steps

1. For the fruit soaked in rum, refer to (Recipe ID: 932734). Or use store-bought fruit soaked in rum.
2. Put the biscuits in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. Mix well with melted butter, and press on the bottom of the mold.
3. Beat the cream until thick. Dissolve the gelatin in water, and heat in a bowl suspended over a pan of hot water.
4. Add softened cream cheese, granulated sugar and lemon juice to the bowl and mix.
5. Add egg yolks, milk and rum-soaked fruits, mixing well between additions.
6. Add gelatin and mix well. Pour in the cream.
7. Put bowl over another bowl filled with ice water, and mix until thickened (don't let the fruit sink to the bottom).
8. Pour the batter into the mold, smooth out the surface and chill until set in the refrigerator.
9. The procedure is the same if you make it in small molds: line the bottoms with the cookie crust, and pour the cream cheese mixture on top.
10. If you make it in the oval shaped molds shown in Step 9, you can just push them up from the bottom to unmold, without having to heat the outside.
11. It looks like this when sliced.
