Traditional Baked New York Cheesecake, the way my Gram used to make it.
Preheat oven to 160 degrees (150 fan forced)
Crush the biscuits and mix with butter until the mixture will hold together when squeezed in the hand.
Place the biscuit mix in a 30-34cm Springform cake tin and push to bottom and sides of the tin with a flat based (and straight sided) glass until you have a consistent thickness. Place in fridge.
Beat together the Cream Cheese and Cottage Cheese until smooth
Add eggs, 1 at a time until well mixed
Gradually add the Sugar and Cornflour and mix well
Add Milk, Sour Cream, Lemon Zest & Juice until all ingredients are well mixed
Pour the Cheesecake Mix into the prepared Biscuit Base
Bake for 1 hour, turn the oven off and allow Cheesecake to cool in the oven
1. Leave out the lemon and add a handful of berries just before you put the cheesecake in the oven. 2. Leave out the lemon, halve the sugar and add a Toblerone, Mars Bars, any other chocolate (to taste). 3. Experiment!!!
