    4. Roll out 2/3 of the dough into the base of your springform tin. Place the rest of the dough around the sides and press up against walls of your baking tin.  This will give edge of 3cm high.

    11. Pour cheese filling into prepared tin and bake at 180c on the middle shelf of your oven for 60-65 minutes or until golden brown.
