Here is the recipe for my cheesecake, most famous and popular of the United States of America, for which the Americans, and not just the Americans, are crazy.
Ingredients for 12 people
- 220 gr of butter
- 100 gr of sugar
- One pack of digestive biscuits
- 500g of philadelphia
- 4 gelatine sheets (8 grams)
- 300 g of double cream
- spash of Vanilla extract
- 1 lemon
- fresh red fruits
Crumble the digestive biscuits with the help of a mixer until a fine grain and mix with the melted butter.Forming a layer of a few centimeters with this grain on the bottom of a cake tin hook 24 cm.
Put the pan in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Soak the gelatine leaves in cold water.
Whip the double cream until it mounts.
Soften Philadelphia with a tongue.
In a saucepan add the vanilla extract, lemon zest and sugar with 100 ml of cold water until it´s boiled.
Out of the stove remove the lemon zest and malt the gelatine in.
Combine the Philadelphia, the whipped cream carefully and the aromatic juice
Mix on medium-low speed until the mixture is creamy, like thick frosting, and no lumps of cream cheese remain.
Scrape down the beater and sides of the bowl with a spatula. Stir the whole batter a few times by hand, being sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl, to make sure everything is incorporated. The finished batter should be thick, creamy, and silky.
Check to make sure the crust and the sides of the pan are cool — if they’re cool enough to comfortably touch, you can go on. Pour the batter over the cooled crust and spread it into an even layer against the sides of the pan, chill the cheesecake, covered, for at least two hours in the refrigerator.
Your cheesecake is done.
Top the cheesecake and serve with a nice mix of red fresh fruit cooked gently for 5 minutes with 30% sugar and a bit of gelatine if too watery.
