Speculoos cheesecake recipe

Preheat your oven to 200 ° C (400°F)

Blend the speculoos cookies until a powder is obtained then mix with the soft butter. Line the bottom of your pan (about 26 cm in diameter) by going up slightly along the sides and bake for 10 minutes.

Preparation of the cream cheese

Meanwhile, whip the cottage cheese with the heavy cream and the sugars for 1 min. Add the whole eggs one by one then the yolks. Sprinkle with cornstarch and whip again for a moment.

Cover all outside of the mold (On the top) with aluminum foil. Pour the cream on the biscuits and bake for 5 min at 200 ° C (400°F) then lower the oven to 160 ° C  (340°F) and bake for 50 min.

Turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake inside (without opening the door) for 1 hour. Then leave it 1 hour outside the oven before placing it for at least 6 hours in the refrigerator.
