Compiled Recipe – Pastillas Dulce De Leche Cheesecake

Pastillas Dulce De Leche Cheesecake

* ½ cup butter, melted
* 2 cups digestive biscuits, crushed
* ½ cup butter, melted
* ½ cup pastillas, cut into ½-inch pieces, plus more for decorating
* 2 (227 gram) bar cream cheese, at room temperature
* ½ cup caster sugar
* 1 tsp. vanilla extract
* 4 medium sized eggs, beaten lightly
* ¼ cup store bought dulce de leche
* extra dulce de leche (for drizzling)

1) Preheat oven to 350◦F.

2) Mix crushed biscuits with melted butter and press down onto the base of the pan.

3) Spread pastillas over the base and chill until ready to assemble.

4) Using a mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and eggs together until smooth and creamy.

5)  Remove pan from refrigerator. Pour cream cheese mixture over the top of the pastillas and swirl dulce de leche in the mixture.

6) Bake for 40 minutes or until pale golden. When you gently shake the pan, the cake should only wobble slightly.

7) Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for about 10 to 15 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen the cake. Carefully remove the cheesecake from the pan. Transfer to a serving plate. Sprinkle top with a few pieces of pastillas, then drizzle with dulce de leche.

8) Cut into slices to serve. This cheesecake is best eaten when it is at room temperature.
