A girl got to do what she has to do when she has a sweet tooth right? Oh, not to mention, a good reason to make a cheesecake is when we realised we have been married for 4 months. Woah, time just flew by so quickly..and to think it's 4 months already!
I have been eying this recipe from Donna Hay for ages now. And I suppose having a food processor makes this soo much easier too.No more crushing bickies using my handy roller! LOL. I made mine with a few modications with the cheese-just because packaging doesnt come with 330 grams of cream cheese or 460grams of ricotta (What am i suppose to do with 40grms?). It still turned out creamy and light which is what I love.
Oh, and pardon the cracks- I do not have a light in my oven so I needed to open the door to give it a few checks. That is of course, a BIG no no to baking cheesecakes. This one is a smaller crack though so I'm giving myself a small pat on the back that it is not as huge as my last cheesecake that I baked.. LOL
