A while ago I posted about the history of Cheesecake, do you remember? I’ve told you that I would also post my cheesecake recipe, but in the meantime I discovered this amazing recipe by the greek chef Akis Petretzikis! My mother loves him and this summer we prepared several dishes by his instructions.. This cheesecake is completely different from the one I make and I have to admit, that is far tastier! You definitely have to try it!
- 1150gr cream cheese
- 300gr sugar
- 2tsp lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 vanillas
- 6 eggs and 2 yolks
- 1 tbsp butter
- 250gr biscuits
- 100g. butter, softened
Beat the biscuits withthe butter in food processo . Spread the mixture in the bottom of a 28cm diameter tart pan and bake for 13-15 minutes at 160 degrees. Remove from the oven and let cool thoroughly.
Turn on the oven at maximum( 260 degrees ) . It is essential that the cream cheese is at ambient temperature. Put the cream cheese in a mixer and beat for two minutes. Add half the sugar and beat for one minute on medium speed. Add the remaining sugar , salt , lemon juice and vanilla .
Add the 2 egg yolks . Beat on low speed to incorporate the mixture. Add the eggs 2-2 and when the mixture is ready pour in the tart pan. Put in the oven , bake for 10 minutes without opening the oven lower the temperature to 100 and bake for 1.5 hours.
