Unlike many cheesecakes, which are merely assembled and served, this Baked Cheesecake features a crust of crushed biscuits, which is topped with a spicy and richly-textured cheesecake mixture and baked till the perfect texture is achieved.

Baking also enhances the flavour of the cheesecake mixture which is comprised predominantly of cottage cheese and other dairy products perked up with raisins and spices.

This melt-in-the-mouth treat therefore has an irresistible flavour that lingers on your palate and memory for a long time afterwards.

A fantastic treat that is perfect to serve at a High Tea Party or as a dessert, with a topping of Chocolate Sauce

It takes real educated effort to make cheesecake! And its really disappointing if it doesnt work out in the end! But with the help of this recipe, I made a beautiful cheesecakes. The crust was crumbly and buttery! A killer dessert.
