Dulce de Leche Cheesecake

Labels: { , }

This recipe is inspired by Reeni and Moon-sweet Kitchen Cat@Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice and DULCE DE LECHE "San Ignacio" CHEESECAKE (The easy way)

Dulce de Leche, differing from caramel, which is made with sugar, corn syrup, milk or cream, and butter, is simply sweetened condensed milk boiled down to a thickened sauce. It is especially popular in South American countries.

  • 150 g Almond cookies, crumbed
  • 100 g Butter, melted
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Toss the cookie crumbs into the melted butter in a mixing bowl. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the mixture for the topping. Press the rest of the mixture onto the bottom and up 3cm high of a greased 24cm spring form pan. Chill until it’s ready for use.
  2. Using electric mixer beat balance cream cheese and sugar in a large mixing bowl until smooth. Add yogurt and eggs, beating until just blended. Stir in cornstarch, dulce de leche, lemon juice and zest until blended.
  3. Pour the mixture into the crust and sprinkle the top with reserved cookie crumbs. Steamed bake the cheesecake at 165C/330F for 65 minutes until almost set. Turn oven off. Leave the cake with the oven door ajar for 1 hour. Cool completely and chill at least 4 hours or overnight until firm.

I just made a no-bake cheesecake yesterday and while good does NOT compare to yours! Love the use of almond cookies instead of the normal graham crackers.

zurin 24/11/09 14:09

Gosh I really wanted to comment on this post but my comp was so SLOW. anyway that cake looks ssooo creamy. I can imagine the Dulce de leche in there. it must have been sensational! fantastic fotos too Angie!

pigpigscorner 24/11/09 22:45

I want the whole cake!! Great idea using dulce de leche..

The Duo Dishes 25/11/09 00:36

Just make a big batch of the filling. It's guaranteed people will want to swim in it! Sounds delish.

Katy ~ 28/11/09 12:08

I think the use of almond cookies in this is just brilliant. I'm not a huge fan of the graham cracker crusts usually associated with cheesecake. This recipe sounds divine!

Art and Appetite 30/11/09 13:33

Oh my goooodieness! What is better than this? This sounds like the best combination for a cheesecake! Ahh, I'm sooo fantasizing about this.

Thanks Angie!
