Baked Toffee Cheesecake
This New York-style baked cheesecake requires a little extra effort but the results are out of this world! The secret to the sticky texture of this cheesecake is in the gentle cooking in a water bath (roasting tin filled with hot water). Cooling the cheesecake slowly in the oven helps to prevent the top cracking.
Digestive biscuits, crushed
Light soft cheese
Half fat crème fraîche
