Cheesecake

This proposal here is the classic version of uncooked Cheese Cake. There are other versions, where we put the cake base in the oven to bake. We'll see it at a later time.
The process is a bit complicated but if you like this dessert, arm yourself with a little perseverance and you will be rewarded in the end!
If something is not clear, please feel free to ask me.

Ingredients (6 servings)

  • 2 cups crushed graham crackers
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • ½ shot of liqueur of our choice
  • 3 tbsp unflavored gelatin powder
  • ½ cup water
  • 500 gr/18 oz cream cheese
  • 250 gr/9 oz thick cold whipped cream
  • ½ cup sugar

Cracker mix

Crush the crackers and wet with melted butter, add a small amount of liqueur of our choice to consolidate the cracker mix

Fruit sauce

  • a small tin of appricots
  • 3 tbsp exotic fruit jelly powder
  • a little water if needed
We strain the apricots from the syrup, mince them and add them in a saucepan with a little water. Cook untill it starts boiling. Add the 3 tbsp of jelly powder, stir gently to a boil and remove from heat.

Cream filling

Melt the unflavored gelatin, using a little hot water.
Beat the cream cheese, make it fluffy and then immediately add the melted gelatin.
In another clean, dry bowl, whip the cold cream with the sugar for a fluffy whipped cream and add it in the cream-cheese mixture, folding gently with a spoon.
Place the bowl in the refrigerator.
It is a fluffy mousse!

Assembly

Place a few tablespoons of cracker mixture on the base of the glass and push with a spoon to spread evenly.
Clean the inside of the glass with paper towels if needed.
We want to get it beautiful and clear inside and out!
Add a few tbsp of cream filling, spread it with the back of the spoon and add a little fruit sauce. Be careful to go round on the glass sides for an impressive result.
Repeat the layer of cream sauce. It is advisable to fill up the glass to the top.
Place the glasses in the refrigerator, covered with transparent film, for a few hours to solidify the mixture.
* Alternative: We choose a form with detachable base, 18-20 cm/7-8 inches diameter, and just do three layers of alternating ingredients: cracker mix, cream mix and sauce of fruit. Put them in the refrigerator, covered with a wrap.
All done and enjoy!
