Ingredients for cheesecake`s base: 2 cups of ground biscuits, 1 ½ cups of butter, 1 ½ cups of ground walnuts

4 eggs

1 tsp. of lemon /or dissolved in water citron powder/

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.
