This cheesecake recipe is prepared with cream cheese. Its taste is delicate and not too sweet.
Ingredients for cheesecake`s base: 2 cups of ground biscuits, 1 ½ cups of butter, 1 ½ cups of ground walnuts
Mix the ingredients with the cold butter, make a ball and leave it in the fridge at least for half an hour. After that take it out and spread it on the bottom of a backing form. Press it well.
Ingredients for the cream:
500 gr. (about one pound) of cream cheese /4 packs of 125 gr../
1 sour cream (about 400 gr. or 14 oz.)
1 2/3 cups of powder sugar
1 tsp. of lemon /or dissolved in water citron powder/
grated lemon rind
Beat the cream cheese with electric whisk, add 4 yolks, the powder sugar, the sour cream and the lemon rind. Beat up egg whites stiff with 1 tsp. of lemon. Than add the whites to the other ingredients slowly and mix them slowly and carefully using a silicone spatula. Thus you will gain extra volume.
Forming the cheesecake:
Pour the cream over the base and bake in preheat oven (180-200 degrees) for about 50 minutes. You could also bake it in water bath. After you turn off the oven don`t take the cake out immediately but wait until it cools up. Serve it with lemon or orange rinds jam.
