to be honest, I don’t like the “standard” cheesecake, I often find them too powerful and not tasty. But this cheesecake is so delicious creamy and light. I baked them in round mini shapes, so you get a nice little pastry!
this cheesecake has a salty biscuit of Tuc crackers, a creamy vanilla cheese filling and a layer of creamy panna cotta, very tasty combinations. In fact, this recipe should just stay secret 😉
I’ve got this recipe from the book ‘Kookschool Patisserie’ and share this with you!
50g Tuc crackers
100g creme fraiche
50g icing sugar
1/2 vanilla bean
1 (bio) lemon
1 gelatin leaf
125g whipped cream
knead a fine dough of the butter, sugar, flour and grounded tuc crackers. Divide a layer in a baking ring (16cm), leave to cool in the fridge
mix the quark, creme fraiche, sugar and cornstarch together. Stir the eggs with the vanilla bean seeds and lemon juice, till you get a nice smooth mixture. Add it to the quark mixture and stir well, pour this mixture, over the biscuit, and bake at 120C for about 60 min., open the oven every 10 minutes, so that any steam can escape. Leave to cool and put it for one night in the fridge
bring 50ml whipped cream, sugar and vanilla bean seeds to the boil and remove from the heat. Add the (pre) soaked gelatin and the rest of the whipped cream. Pour over the baked cheesecake, and leave to cool in the fridge for about 2 hours
