Hi all you cookers!!! We had a BBQ on our terrace yesterday (I know - November, right??) and someone brought a shop-bought frozen cheesecake, unfortunately it was a bit of a let down. I love cheesecake and I always make one at Xmas with made up ingredients. The base is of course biscuit, the frozen one was almost cake-like. The filling, I use Mascarpone cheese, creme fraiche, double cream, and icing sugar, the frozen one was just krem shanti. It certainly didn't hit the mark!! With Xmas next month, I'm going to have a go at a cheesecake, now so I can perfect it. So, my questions are, using Turkish ingredients,a. Which biscuits would you recommend for the base?b. Do you think Labne cheese is a good substitute for Philadelphia cheese? Are there any other soft cheeses you would recommend?c. Do you think if I just ground up granulated sugar I could use it instead of icing sugar?d. Do you have a recipe I could change around to make a yummy cheesecake with Turkish ingredients?thanks very much, I anticipate any replies with a watering mouth!!
