Cheesecake (cheese cake) is a very popular dessert that can be found on the menu of any restaurant, cafe or pastry shop. Why do we love cheesecake so much? For its delicate creamy texture, silky texture and not sugary sweetness. Previously, cheese pie was some kind of exotic, but now any housewife can cook a cheesecake.
Cheesecake is traditionally made based on shortbread and soft cheese. Commonly used cheese is Philadelphia, Mascarpone, Ricotta, Buco or Almette. But in the absence of these, you can use ordinary homemade fatty cottage cheese. There are two ways to make this dessert:
cold, that is, without baking. In this case, the cheese mass is combined with gelatin or other thickeners to keep the cheesecake in shape.
hot – in this case, the cake is baked in the oven or cooked in a water bath.
Variations of fillings are also not small: with fruits, cookies, chocolate, with the addition of alcohol, etc.
