Ingredients needed for a cheesecake
- 700 gram cream cheese
- 100 gram powdered sugar
- 40 gram flour
- 4 eggs
- 50 gram butter
- half a pack Lu Bastogne cookies (Dutch cinnamon cookies)

Kitchen equipment needed
- 1 springform

Preparing the cheesecake — 10 minutes
Pre-heat your oven to 150 degrees celsius or 300 degrees fahrenheit.
Start by greasing the spring form and line with parchment paper. Crumble the Lu Bastogne cookies either by adding it in a zip-loc bag and smashing it with a rolling-pin or simply by using a blender.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan, add in the Bastogne crumbs and mix together. Divide the dairy butter and Bastogne mixture in the springform. Press firmly and make sure there are no holes visible.
Add the cream cheese, 4 eggs, powdered sugar and the flour into the stand mixer bowl and mix on high-speed until a smooth mixture has formed. Grate the lemon and squeeze the juice from the lemon, add the lemon zest and juice to the mixture and give it a good stir. Pour the cream cheese, eggs and powdered sugar mixture over the cakebottom.
Baking the cheesecake — 35 minutes + waiting time
Add the springform into the oven for about 30 to 35 minutes, bake at a temperature of 150 degrees celsius or 300 degrees fahrenheit. When the cheesecake is done, remove from the oven and set aside to cool. Refrigerate when at room temperature. You can add red fruit or blueberries to liking, enjoy!
