NY Cheesecake

(adapted from the original 'coz that had no base to it)

I Luuuurve Cheesecake! I could live off cheesecake and roast chicken, that's all.

For the base, 2/3 pack of digestive biscuits a hand full of unrefined sugar and about 50gr butter, all mixed up in the mix-up machine. The butter and sugar, distributed through the biscuit crumbs will melt in the oven, then later cool down and solidificate, thus holding the base together. All very scientific you know.

The other ingredients;
250gr Ricotta cheese
250gr Cottage cheese
Two whole eggs
3/4 cup of sugar (can be leant from that good looking neighbour you've been meaning to chat-up)
A couple of tablespoons of lemon juice and a tablespoon of lemon rasp (I cheated, it's from a pot)
2tb flour and 2tb cornflour(starch)
A few drops of vanilla essence.
125gr butter

They all get seasick in the mixer for a while and then get poured over the crumbly base that I forgot to mention needed spreading out in a (buttered) "springvorm" (one of those cake tins that come apart at the end of cooking so you can get the thing out without totally destroying it all)

This then goes into a pre-heated oven at 160-180 degrees C for ages and ages (about an hour and a half) then, when it goes "ping" LEAVE IT IN THERE! For another hour and a half to cool down completely.

Spread the sour-cream over as a topping, it's quite thick of itself so won't run all over the sides, the way I was afraid it might.

Stick it in the fridge and try to keep off it for at least a couple of hours (not easy, let me tell you) preferably overnight (yeah, right) as it'll taste even better the next day.

Right that's MY cake sorted for tomorrow, now, what will we give to the guests?
