The crusty Homemade cheesecake
A crisp biscuit base topped with a creamy mixture, the secret of cheesecake dessert of THE quintessential New Yorker. Forget the plane ticket, you just go in the kitchen to travel in a phone ladle. Follow this step-by-step guide to make the cheesecake with the images of steps to make your life easier and bring the cheesecake in your life today.
On the menu, The New York Cheesecake, a baked cheesecake with a chocolate cookie base and Philadelphia cheese filling, as there (now we find easily in France this fresh cheese that gives its specificity to cheesecake). You can of course use the cookies of your choice, crackers or small-butters. Take 60 g butter with 200 g of about cookies. If you are not from Philadelphia, you can replace it with another fresh cheese. The result will not be exactly the same but, without a doubt, very good as well!
For 6 people, you will need the following ingredients:
For the base:
– 200 g of chocolate chip cookies
– 125 g butter, melted
– 75 g flaked almonds
For the filling:
– 700 g of fresh cheese like “Philadelphia cream cheese”
– 150 g sugar
– 2 tablespoons flour
– 1 vanilla pod
– 5 eggs (3 whole eggs + 2 egg yolks)
– 150 g heavy cream
– 3 tablespoons milk
– 1 teaspoon of cocoa (optional)
Start first by Line a mold with high sides and removable bottom with baking paper. If you love cheesecake and you intend to do often, buying this utensil is highly recommended because it can easily unmold the cake without having to overthrow (the cheesecake is not suitable at all to this type of exercise !) or lift the parchment paper (very delicate operation that, in my case, often ends in commando rescue operation , too heavy for the paper that is the trunk, sags and whatnot!).
Preheat oven to 180 ° C ( gas mark 6 ) .
Cover the bottom of the mold lined with flaked almonds.
Mix cookies with melted butter. Spread the cookies on almond and pack it well with a spoon. Bake for 15 minutes.
Mash the cheese and mix well to soften and smooth . Then add one after the other sugar, eggs, vanilla , flour and cream.
Pour over the cooked pastry case .
To decorate the cheesecake , smooth the top of the cream and pour over the cocoa milk mixture . Then decorate with a knife to make spikes or swirls .
Bake for 15 minutes at 200 ° C then lower the oven temperature to 100 ° C (gas mark 3-4) for 1 additional hour of cooking.
Once the cheesecake is cooked, turn off the oven and leave it inside until the oven gets cool. Leave it to cool completely at room temperature before placing in the refrigerator at least 12 hours before serving the delicious homemade cheesecake.
