I made a mighty fine "rare cheesecake" today. I was supposed to make a baked cheesecake, but I found an interesting recipe and decided to try that out instead. I'll try to make a baked one later on, though. Here's the recipe:
12 "Digestive" type crackers 75g Butter 3 eggs 125g vanilla extract OR 75g of sugar 3dl whipped cream 200g Philadelphia cheese(or any other "cream" type cheese)
1. First of all you should prepare the "dough". Put the crackers in a plastic bag and crush the hell out of them until you have only crumbs left. Then melt the butter and mix it with the cracker crumbs. DONE. Now press the "dough" onto the bottom and sides of a springform pan.
2. Secondly, separate the eggs' yolks and mix them with the vanilla extract/sugar until you get a fluffy mass. Put the mass aside for a while since you're going to be needing it later.
3. Whip the egg whites and cream in SEPARATE bowls, then mix the cream with the mass you created earlier (see "2."). When you've finished mixing in the cream mix the egg whites in to complete the cheesecake's filling.
4. Pour the filling you made in "3." into the springform pan and onto the dough. Voila! It's almost done. Now you only need to put that shit into the freezer for about 5 hours and get ready to taste a piece of heaven. Don't overeat though, it's pretty rich.
COOL TI: If you don't want the cream to frost while freezing it, put something on top to cover it up. The best thing to do is to use about 6 more digestive crackers and 40g of butter and make some more dough to use as the cover. Mighty effective and mighty tasty!!!
