Recipe's preparation

  1. To Prepare the cheesecake Base:

    Place the biscuits and sugar into the TM bowl and process on speed 7 for 2-3 seconds.  Place in a bowl while you melt the butter.  

    Melt butter by putting it into the TM bowl on 100degrees, speed 1 for 2 mins.

    Add crumbs back to TM bowl (with butter) and process on speed 4 for 15 seconds or until butter and crumbs are combined.

    Press mixture over the base and sides of a non-stick springform tin.  Use a glass to press the base down firmly.  Chill in the fridge for 30 mins.

    To Prepare Cheesecake Filling:

    Preheat oven to 220 degrees celcius

    Place cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, lime zest and juice in the TM bowl and process on Counter-clockwise operation speed 3 for 10 seconds.  Reduce speed to 2 and add the eggs and egg yolk, one at time - make sure it is combined before adding the next egg.  Reduce to speed 1 and add cream.  Wait 5 seconds then turn off.  Pour cheesecake mixture into tin over crumb base.

    Bake on lowest shelf of oven for 10 mins.  Reduce temp to 150 degrees and bake a further 25-30 mins or until mixture is almost set.

    Cool cheesecake in oven with door slightly ajar.  Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

    Serve with double cream and a lime wedge.

    Hi Ros ... will definately try this recipe!!  Looks delicious. Do you mind if I contacted you about the overseas volunteer work your daughter is doing? My youngest daughter has been to Kenya twice to volunteer (school mission trips) She has just completed her first year at Uni and wants to take a Gap year to travel and do some volunteer work as well. She found an organisation in the US, but they won't allow Australians for their program. Would really appreciate finding out about what your daughter is doing  tmrc_emoticons.-)  My name is Bev Smith. Email is mumilbee@hotmail.com Ph. 0418281377  Thanks Ros ... Bev

    Was delicious, looked very impressive like a cheescake in a shop.  I had to add a little more butter to get the biscuit base to stick, next time would probably make a smaller amount of base.  I also had to cook it for a longer time.  Thank you for the recipe will definitly make it again. tmrc_emoticons.)
