8 Secrets To The Perfect Homemade Cheesecake
The cheesecake crust
The special thing about cheesecake is the crust: it's always made of crumbled cookies that are mixed with butter and pressed into the cake tin. The beauty of this recipe is that you can use different types of cookies, ranging from classic graham crackers to digestive biscuits or even gingersnaps.
Simply crush the cookies using a rolling pin or give them a spin in your food processor, then top with melted butter and press into the bottom of your cake mold.
