In Moldova, those who bear the name of Saint Mary are celebrated in September, but as I know that in other places this tradition does not exist, I also come late to wish "happy birthday" and all the best to all those who celebrated today. .
And here I bring you a cheesecake , a cake without baking , only good for hot weather and for when unexpected guests are announced, but welcome 😉
- For the countertop:
- 200 g biscuits
- 100 g butter
- 1 tablespoon black cocoa
- For the filling:
- 300 g Almette cream cheese
- 200 ml whipped cream
- 4 tablespoons powdered sugar flavored with lemon peel
- 1 sachet of vanilla sugar
- For decoration:
- ~ 50 g chocolate curls
Preparation Cheesecake – without baking:
Grind the biscuits on the food processor until a fine crumb is obtained. Add cocoa and melted butter and mix again until smooth.
- I used sweet and crumbly biscuits, like Picnik, and there was no need for sugar. If you use another type of biscuit, add sugar to taste
Pour the composition into a tray with a detachable ring (20 cm in diameter) lined with baking paper and press well with a spoon, then with the bottom of a glass. We will raise a little on the walls of the tray forming a border, but this is not absolutely necessary and I think it will look even better at the end 😉 We put the tray in the fridge until we prepare the filling.
I had prepared the flavored sugar with lemon peel beforehand. I prepared a lemon powder according to the recipe HERE which I then mixed with powdered sugar (1-2 teaspoons per 100 g of sugar). If you don't have it you can flavor it with anything else you like.
Beat the whipped cream until it starts to take on consistency. Add the vanilla sugar and a tablespoon of sugar and mix until firm and fluffy. Separately mix the cream cheese with the rest of the sugar, then lightly mix the 2 compositions. Pour the composite over the cookie sheet and refrigerate for an hour.
Garnish with chocolate curls. To get the curls, grate the chocolate (left at room temperature) on the long side of the tablet with the vegetable cleaner.
