8Recipe is created for
Line the base of a 20cm or 22cm springform tin.
To prepare base:
Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees Celcius.
Add biscuits to the TM bowl and press the turbo button in short bursts until finely crushed.
Add melted butter and mix on speed 4 for 10 seconds.
Transfer the biscuit mixture to the tin and press firmly into the base and sides. Place in the fridge to chill.
To prepare filling:
To a clean TM bowl add the cream cheese, rind, juice, sour cream and sugar and mix on speed 6 for 30 seconds (using the spatula to assist) or until smooth.
Scrape down the sides of the TM bowl and add the eggs. Mix on speed 5 for 15 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl again and mix on speed 5 for a further 15 seconds, or until combined.
Pour cheese mixture into the base and bake for 1 hour or until just set in the centre.
Turn the oven off and leave to cool with the oven door ajar (to stop cheesecake cracking).
Place in the fridge overnight (or for at least 2 - 4 hours) to chill.
To prepare meringue:
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celcius.
Whisk the egg whites until firm peaks form. Add sugar gradually and whisk until mixture is glossy and thick and the sugar has dissolved.
Spoon onto the top of the cheesecake and spread right to the edges.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. This can happen quite quickly so make sure you check it regularly.
Return to the fridge to chill before serving (not essential if you don't have the time).
