A classic American cheesecake from the cracker crust to the creamy filling. Packed with plenty of vanilla flavor, this cheesecake is topped with your favorite fruit jam or sauce. We recommend pomegranate.

Ingredients

  • 200 grams shortbread cookies
  • 5 tablespoons butter (liquid)
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 300 grams philadelphia cream cheese (at room temperature)
  • 150 grams sugar
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla sugar
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 200 milliliters cream
  • jam (Pomegranate, or jam of choice)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Crush the cookies with the butter, for a batter with a sandy texture.
  3. Add water, and mix again with your fingertips.
  4. Line a springform pan with the batter.
  5. Cover the bottom completely, and slightly up the sides.
  6. Bake the crust for about 10 minutes.
  7. Whisk the cream cheese with the sugar and vanilla extract.
  8. Add the eggs and beat well until obtaining a fluffy cream.
  9. Finally, add the cream, and beat again.
  10. Remove the base from oven, and cover with the filling.
  11. Bake for 15 minutes.
  12. After 15 minutes, lower the temperature to 150 C, and continue baking for about 20 minutes, or until the center is cooked.
  13. Turn off the oven, open the door just a little, and let the pie cool down completely in the oven, so the filling doesn't crack.
  14. When cold, and before serving cover with jam of your choice.

This dessert is one of my favorite to make. Cheesecake alone is freaking delicious. Adding the jam just makes it all the better. The consistency of the cake here is on point. The first time I did this I did the pomegranate jam, but I have done others jams since. My favorite jams to do is strawberry. Sometimes I'll add peanut butter to the better and leave out the jam. Definitely a fantastic recipe, and what makes it better is you can add whatever jam you want based on your flavor preferences or do different flavors every time.
