How to make crème brûlée cheesecake

Difficulty: easy
  • Total time 1 h 35 m
  • Elaboration 20 m
  • Cooking 1 h 15 m
  • Repose 8 h

We will start by preheating the oven to 160 degrees and greasing a mold of about 20 centimeters of removable diameter.

In a kitchen robot or by crushing them with a rolling pin, we powder the cookies. We add the melted butter and a pinch of salt and stir to form a dough with the cookie crumbs. We line with it the base of the mold pressing it with a spoon, the base of the mold and a little the sides. We reserve.

To make the filling, in a large bowl and using a mixer, beat the cream cheese at room temperature together with the sugar. Add the eggs, the yolks, the cream and the vanilla. Stir until all the ingredients are integrated. Add the flour and mix. We put the mixture on the biscuit base.

In a deep baking dish, place the cake pan covered with aluminum foil and pour boiling water up to half the height of the mold to make a Bain Marie. Bake in this way for one hour and 15 minutes. Once the time passes, we open the oven, turn it off and let the cake cool little by little in the open and off oven.

We put it in the fridge and let it rest overnight. The next day, we sprinkle it with serving time, icing sugar, and burn it with a kitchen torch until it leaves a crunchy caramelized layer.

With which to accompany the crème brûlée cheesecake

This crème brûlée cheesecake can be accompanied by red berries such as raspberries or blueberries. Also a scoop of vanilla ice cream can be a good companion to this truly delicious French-American cake.
